Magdalene is British singer FKA twigs‘ sophomore album and her first full-length LP in long five years. Her last project was the 2015 EP M3LL155X. It was originally scheduled to be released on October 25th but was pushed back to November. We can finally say that the album is here!
FKA Twigs is inspired by sounds as diverse as choral church hymns, electronic music, and avant-garde pop. Rather than overwhelming her creative vision, these wide-ranging influences help Twigs in crafting something unique. For Twigs, breaking out of the confines of genre eliminates expectations and allows her to explore subjects on her own terms.
Twigs explores her emotions track by track. There are very real worlds of contradictions on the songs, a world where few artists are ready or lyrically talented enough to go. Yes, she acknowledges she is hurt by the heartbreak, but she will not let this limit her, and she is determined to untether herself from her previous partners and love herself for who she is. Some think that this album is about her breakup with actor Robert Pattinson in 2017.
