Following a three-year break from releasing any music, FKA Twigs has returned, and she’s better than ever.
Dropped yesterday, the singer shared a haunting and vulnerable new single, “Cellophane,” which marked our first taste of new music from her since the release of her 2016 track, “Good To Love.”
The newly released single, which was written and produced by FKA Twigs herself, along with Jeff Kleinman and Michael Uzowuru, is our first look at any upcoming music from the singer (who appears to be working on her follow-up to her 2014 debut, LP1.)
Of the process of creating the track, FKA Twigs shared in a press release:
“Throughout my life, I’ve practiced my way to being the best I could be, it didn’t work this time. I had to tear down every process I’d ever relied on. go deeper. Rebuild. Start again”
Twigs then continued on by commenting on the song’s powerful new music video that accompanied the haunting track, which was directed by Andrew Thomas Huang:
“When I wrote cellophane over a year ago a visual narrative came to me immediately, I knew I had to learn how to pole-dance to bring it to life, and so that’s what I did. Thank you @andrewthomashuang, for elevating my vision beyond words. You are a visionary. @kellyvon thank you for being with me every step of the way on my precious pole yellow brick road. Working with you both on this is a dream come true.”

It appears that 2019 is going to be a busy year for FKA Twigs.
The singer is set to take the new song on the road this summer, where she’ll be doing a whole slew of live performances across various parts of the globe! And most exciting of all, it appears she’s hinted at additional tour dates.
