FKA twigs has announced her second album, ‘Magdalene’.
Due on 25th October via Young Turks, it’ll be preceded by new single ‘holy terrain ft. Future’, released tonight at 19.30 BST.
“I never thought heartbreak could be so all-encompassing,” she says of the full-length, the follow-up to 2014’s ‘LP1’.
“I never thought that my body could stop working to the point that I couldn’t express myself physically in the ways that I have always loved and found so much solace.
“I have always practiced my way into being the best I could be, but I couldn’t do that this time, I was left with no option but to tear every process down.
“But the process of making this album has allowed me for the first time, and in the most real way, to find compassion when I have been at my most ungraceful, confused and fractured. I stopped judging myself and at that moment found hope in ‘Magdalene’. To her I am forever grateful”
Recorded between London, New York and Los Angeles over the last three years, the record features contributions from a number of collaborators, including Nicolas Jaar, Skrillex and Jack Antonoff.
The track listing reads:
1 thousand eyes
2 home with you
3 sad day
4 holy terrain ft. Future
