FKA Twigs has announced that her long-awaited new album, Magdalene, her first in five years, will be out on October 25 via Young Turks.
The album, which features several collaborations, including with producer Nicolas Jarr and Matthew Stone, follows her debut album, LP1, released in 2014.
FKA Twigs has also released “Holy Terrain,” the second single off the upcoming album.
“Holy Terrain,” produced by FKA Twigs, Skrillex and Jack Antonoff, features Atlanta rapper Future.
This is her second collaboration with Future after they teamed up for A$AP Rocky‘s “Fukk Sleep” in 2018.
Twigs produced and recorded Magdalene over the last three years in London, New York, and Los Angeles, during a period in which she went through emotional turmoil and physical pain as she underwent surgery to remove six tumors from her uterus.
Twigs said in a press release that she never thought heartbreak could be so all-encompassing.
“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,” she wrote.
“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,” Twigs added. “I stopped judging myself and at that moment found hope in ‘MAGDALENE.’ To her I am forever grateful.”
In April, Twigs dropped a video for her single “Cellphone” and a documentary about its creation.
