FKA twigs has detailed her forthcoming album, which she wrote and recorded entirely via FaceTime during lockdown, and she’s hinted that new music from the collection will likely arrive as soon as this week.
On January 25th, twigs appeared on Louis Theroux’s Grounded podcast, where she revealed that she spent 2020 working on the follow-up to 2019’s Magdalene with a host of collaborators.
“Over lockdown I wrote an album, all over the internet,” twigs explains. “All working with people I’ve never worked with before. I’ve got more collaborations and features on this album than I’ve ever had before. The majority of the people I’ve never met in real life. We spent a lot of time with each other over FaceTime. It’s a real product of 2020. It’s about being able to have my work represent landmarks in time. To make an album over FaceTime is the epitome of an artist being isolated and still having the desire to make work. So I felt that I did that.”
On January 24th, twigs took to Instagram to ask, “did someone say they wanted new music?” later adding, “might have something for you this week…”
