Amid all the bullshit of human existence in 2019, at least it's comforting to know we can rely on creative respite from artists of FKA twigs' caliber.
Early Monday, twigs released her new song and self-helmed video "home with you," which she described in a statement to Complex as being uniquely notable for its reinforcement of a personal suspicion regarding doubt.
"You can take the girl out of the suburbs but you can't take the suburbs out of the girl," she said. "'home with you' reinforced my reoccurring suspicion that when I'm in doubt, I should follow my gut and go home."
"Home with you" is the latest glimpse into the next era of twigs. Her new album, MAGDALENE, is out Nov. 8 via Young Turks and also features the previously released "cellophane" and "holy terrain," the latter of which boasts a dash of Future.
"It was only when i offered my own sometimes fruitful, often poisoned teat to raise you that you would look me in the eye, drink, submit and allow me to bend and contort you into a sculpture that mirrored my own truth," twigs told fans of the MAGDALENE creation process last month. "and here we are. now you stand bigger than i will ever be, others will dance with you, enjoy you, question you, cry with you and marvel at your broken excellence."
This new chapter of twigs will also be complemented by a globally expansive run of shows including experiences at Tyler, the Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw in Los Angeles and the O2 Academy Brixton in London.
