FKA twigs (ft. Future) – holy terrain
Written by Toby Taylor on 10th September 2019
Ahead of the release of her forthcoming sophomore album “MAGDALENE”, FKA twigs teases a more reflective & vulnerable side.
“holy terrain” is the second single teased from the album, and was co-produced by twigs herself (who also produced the majority of the album), Skrillex and Jack Antonoff. Featuring a guest appearance from Atlanta rapper Future, the track sees twigs deftly alternate between soft melancholic vocals and a soaring falsetto, interspersed over an ominous trap beat.
The track suggests a change in direction from twigs, and indeed the album itself, “MAGDALENE” is both lyrically and stylistically influenced by a period of heartbreak and personal turmoil the artist experienced when she had six fibroid tumours removed.
“MAGDALENE” is due for release on October 25th on Young Turks.
