Tahliah Debrett Barnett, aka art-pop artist FKA twigs, is back with her long-awaited second album and follow-up to her critically-acclaimed 2014 debut album, LP1. Magdalene was again produced by twigs herself as she took full creative control, and features contributions from the likes of Nicolas Jaar, plus a guest spot from the rapper Future. The album is a sonic step-forward for twigs as she conjures up her own sound universe using everything from pop, RnB, electronica, hip-hop, contemporary classical, and more abstract and experimental approaches. Magdalene is a true modern musical masterpiece!

"FKA twigs ends months of speculation by announcing details of her highly anticipated second album. ‘Magdalene’. The album is the follow up to FKA twigs’ critically acclaimed Brit Award and Mercury Prize nominated debut ‘LP1’. Created in a period where her confidence was knocked following heartbreak and laparoscopic surgery, ‘Magdalene’ is the sound of twigs reconfiguring, emotionally and physically. As she sings on ‘Mary Magdalene’, the Magdalene album track that opened her highly-praised, sold-out live shows earlier in the year, “A woman’s time / A woman’s work / A woman’s time to embrace / She must put herself first.” ‘Magdalene’ is produced by FKA twigs and, as with ‘LP1’, the recording process has been directed by her at every stage. It was recorded between London, New York and Los Angeles over the last three years and features major contributions from Nicolas Jaar alongside a host of other collaborators. ‘Magdalene’ sees FKA twigs creating a whole new artistic universe and it is, without doubt, her most masterful, innovative work to date."
