Torres, a singer who really came into her own with her last album Three Futures, has apparently been dropped by her former label 4AD. According to a tweet, she states that the reason for her being dropped is due to “not being commercially successful enough.” She states that she had a three album deal with the label, adding “fuck the music industry.”
My former label, @4AD_Official, has decided to drop me from a 3 album deal for not being commercially successful enough. I wish them all the best. Also, fuck the music industry. Xo, Mackenzie

It does come as a shock as Torres had released the best album of her career, one that showed impressive growth and auspicious potential for even greater things. The album landed at 14 on our Top 50 albums of 2017. She released her debut album independently and her sophomore LP was issued through Partisan Records. Three Futures was the first album she released for 4AD.
We have reached out to Torres’ representatives for comment.
