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.
