FKA twigs returns today with her first new music in over three years. Written and produced by FKA twigs with Jeff Kleinman and Michael Uzowuru, “Cellophane” is twigs’ most vulnerable song to date and is an enticing first glimpse of what to expect from her second album; the follow up to her Mercury Prize and Brit Award nominated 2014 debut, LP1. “Cellophane” Talking about the process, FKA twigs says, “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”

“Cellophane” is accompanied by a video directed by Andrew Thomas Huang. The video is a powerful visual contrast to the vulnerability of the song’s lyrics (“Didn’t I do it for you? Why don’t I do It for you?”) and stars FKA twigs in a role that she trained for months in advance for, adding another facet to her enviable multi-disciplinary skill set.

Before 2018 closed out Dinah Jane released her first solo single “Botted Up” Featuring Ty Dolla $ign, now the 5th Harmony singer returns with her 3 song EP titled Dinah Jane 1. The new self-titled set of songs include Pass Me By, “Heard It All Before,” and “Fix It.”

“I do want to release new music, [but] at the same time, I want to release a great work of art, like a little mini project that is authentic,” she explained. “After coming off of ‘Bottled Up’ I wanted people to really get to know me and dig a little deeper. These records are what I’ve been holding on to for a while now.

“As I look into these three songs, I get a little nervous because they don’t sound like anything else out there, anything on the radio, or anything any artist is doing right now,” she says. “I get scared and timid and think ‘oh my gosh, this does sound like cool or popular enough?’ Then I sit back and think, I don’t have to be like anyone else. It has [to be] my own direction. I can’t compare myself to anyone else’s projects.”

While the 3 song project made its debut today, Dinah wasted no time with giving her fans visuals as well. Just a few moments ago Dinah unleashed her new video for Heard It All Before. Check out the video below.
