After saying back in October that she’d written a new album during lockdown, FKA twigs has hinted that we may be getting our first taste of her forthcoming record, announcing via Instagram that she’ll be releasing new music this week!
“did someone say they wanted new music?” She wrote in the caption. “might have something for you this week…”
She previously mentioned the follow-up to ‘Magdalene’ in a virtual interview for Grammy’s Museum Programs at Home, saying, “I ended up, in actual fact, making a whole album in quarantine. I just decided one day. It was kind of, maybe, one-third of the way through and I just said, ‘you know what, I’m just going to make an album’, and I just went and did it. And it was really amazing because I worked predominantly with an amazing artist and producer called El Guincho, and I did the whole thing with pretty much all of the collaborators over FaceTime.”
“I was working with people I’d never met in real life and we were doing the whole thing over FaceTime and it was great because I couldn’t go in the studio at the beginning,” she continued. “So I was getting beats and having to work from MP3s, and then I would writing melodies in the day with [El Guincho] and then in the night I would call some of my friends in America who made music and I would have a glass of wine and chill and write lyrics and talk about what the song’s about.”
