FKA twigs ha concesso a i-D una lunga intervista nella quale ha rivelato che il successore di LP1 arriverà quest’autunno.
L’album si intitola Magdalene ed è prodotto dalla stessa FKA in collaborazione con Nicolas Jaar. Ma c’è di più: l’artista ha anche svelato che ci sarà una traccia dal titolo Holy Terrain che vede il featuring di Future.
Nell’intervista racconta anche com’è andata esattamente quando ha chiesto a Future di collaborare a un brano del suo album:
“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.”
In merito a Magdalene aggiunge che “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.”
