In April, FKA twigs returned with her first new music in over three years in the form of new single “Cellophane.” The song, her most vulnerable and connective to date, was accompanied by her most ambitious and powerful video yet, in collaboration with director Andrew Thomas Huang. Together they provided an enticing glimpse of what to expect of FKA twigs’ second album; the follow up to her Mercury Prize and Brit Award nominated LP1.

“twigs’ delicate voice is just impossibly moving here. In between short gasps, she sings uncomplicated words that seem drenched with complicated feelings…. But by the end of the song, her falsetto soars, calling upon a philosophy that twigs has often invoked in her...
