FKA Twigs has announced that she will release her second album next month, titled ‘Magdelene’. A one-off London show will follow in November.

She says of the album’s inspiration: “I never thought heartbreak could be so all-encompassing. 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”, she continues. “I stopped judging myself and at that moment found hope in ‘Magdalene’. To her I am forever grateful”.

‘Magedelene’ is out on 25 Oct, and FKA Twigs will perform live at Brixton Academy on 25 Nov. Listen to new single, ‘Holy Terrain’, featuring Future, here:
