FKA Twigs’ ‘Magdalene’ era has given fans refreshing and raw insight into the artist’s world by way of its musical material and the visuals she has created to celebrate its stories.
Only right then that she celebrate her new sound with her friends over at Apple Music as the album’s supporting tour continues to rock venues globally.
Waiting below is her insightful conversation with Zane Lowe.
What she addresses? Heartbreak, how pain and sorrow changed her body and how creating the new album saved her from the darkness she feared would consume her.
I 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. 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.
