Five years since ‘LP1’, FKA twigs has officially confirmed her follow-up record! Set for release on 25th October, ‘MAGDALENE’ explores twigs reconfiguring both emotionally and physically after heartbreak and surgery.
“I never thought heartbreak could be so all-encompassing,” she says in a statement. “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”
