Tahliah Debrett Barnett, who is professionally known as FKA Twigs has officially released new details on her upcoming album, Magdalene. She announced that the album will be released this fall. This full-length project will be a follow up to her 2014 album, LP1. Magdalene is going to be self-produced and will feature contributions from Nicola Jaar and other collaborators who are yet to be announced.
She also mentioned one particular song named “Holy Terrain” which features the one and only Future. She said that the moment that she confirmed that he would be on her album was better than good. In an interview, she stated that when she asked him, “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.” Clearly she’s beyond excited to be blessed with a feature from the ‘March Madness’ rapper.
When she spoke of Magdalene she said that it “is about every lover that I’ve ever had and every lover that I’m going to have.” Musically, “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.”
Twigs has been on an interview and slight music hiatus since 2016 but she spoke out in a recent interview about how hard it was for her to return to work after having undergone surgery to remove tumors from her uterus in 2017.
We are more than happy to have her back in the realm of being active in music and you can look forward to hearing her album in the coming months, along with a tour that kicks off in November of this year.
