Dopo la pubblicazione dello scorso aprile del singolo Cellophane, FKA twigs ha annunciato che questo autunno pubblicherà un nuovo album intitolato Magdalene per Young Turks.
L’artista inglese ha rivelato in un’intervista rilasciata a i-D che il follow-up del suo primo disco LP1 è stato autoprodotto dalla stessa insieme a Nicolas Jaar, e che a questo hanno preso parte molti altri artisti, tra cui Future in Holy Terrain.
Sull’album ha detto:
is about every lover that I’ve ever had, and every lover that I’m going to have. Just when you think it’s really fragile and about to fall apart, there’s an absolute defiance and strength in a way that my work’s never had before.
Ha poi aggiunto come è nata la collaborazione con Future:
He texted back right away and I was like [throws her phone onto the sofa]: “Oh my god, he’s just messaged me back!” He’s such a sweetheart. I sent him the album and I called him up and was like: “Listen, Future… this is what my album’s about. It’s a really empowering, sensitive record, with a lot of feminine energy, and this song is probably the most fun track on it, but I still need lyrical content”. And he said: “Okay, I’ve got it”. And his verse is beautiful. He’s just talking about his downfalls as a man; how he’s sorry and asking for healing. I love sad Future. I love when he gets emo, when he expresses himself.
