It’s only a few of weeks until FKA twigs drops her debut album LP1, and so far we’ve heard the stunning lead track “Two Weeks”. Today another new track has emerged in the shape of the slow-burning, minimalistic trip-hop of “Video Girl”.
Speaking to Pitchfork recently Twigs said of the track “I wrote that very shortly after I stopped being a video girl. When I got signed, I stopped dancing – I’d given up that part of my life. I would go out, and somebody would be like, ‘Oh, I recognise you!’ I’d hope it was because they’d heard my music, but they’d say, ‘Are you that girl from the Jessie J video?’ I’d always say no, and they’d be like, ‘You’re lying!’ I’d say, No! It’s not me. They’d say, ‘You look just like her.’ And I’d be like, I know. So many people say that! It’s weird!”. Listen below!
LP1 is due out on August 12th via Young Turks.
