FKA Twigs releases her second album MAGDALENE on the 8th November via Young Turks. Now, FKA twigs has revealed more brand new music from the record with her minimal and haunting new single ‘home with you’. FKA Twigs produced the track, wrote it with Ethan P. Flynn, and directed and starred in the accompanying video.
It follows the release of previous MAGDALENE tracks ‘cellophane’ and ‘holy terrain’, her collaboration with Future. Marrying the kind of unique, washed out, innovative production twigs is renowned for with shafts of soulful rnb ‘home with you’ is another enticing glimpse of what fans can expect from MAGDALENE.
“You can take the girl out of the suburbs but you can’t take the suburbs out of the girl. ‘home with you’ reinforced my reoccurring suspicion that when i’m in doubt, I should follow my gut and go home” FKA twigs on ‘home with you’, October 2019
MAGDALENE is the follow-up to FKA twigs’ critically acclaimed Brit Award and Mercury Prize nominated debut LP1 (2014, Young Turks). Created in a period where her confidence was knocked following heartbreak and laparoscopic surgery, MAGDALENE “is the sound of twigs reconfiguring, emotionally and physically.” As she sings on ‘Mary Magdalene’, the album track that opened her highly-praised, sold-out live shows earlier in the year, “A woman’s time / A woman’s work / A woman’s time to embrace / She must put herself first”.
MAGDALENE is produced by FKA twigs and, as with LP1, the recording process has been directed by her at every stage. It was recorded between London, New York and Los Angeles over the last three years and, as previously reported, features major contributions from Nicolas Jaar alongside a host of other collaborators. MAGDALENE sees FKA twigs creating a whole new artistic universe.
