FKA twigs has confirmed the details of her second album Magdalene.
First discussed earlier this month, the follow-up to 2014’s Mercury Prize-nominated debut LP1 has now been given a release date of October 25th. It was recorded with Nicolas Jaar during the course of three tumultuous years in Tahliah Barnett’s life, in London, New York and Los Angeles.
“I never thought heartbreak could be so all-encompassing,” she’s said. “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. I stopped judging myself and at that moment found hope in ‘Magdalene’. To her I am forever grateful.”
