‘Tears In The Club’, which Twigs teased earlier this week, has a more contemporary pop sound than the singer usually delivers, but still maintains the etherealness and distortion for which she’s become known.
The release of the song is accompanied by a haunting music video, in which Twigs dances in a nightclub under flashing strobe lights, before performing for The Weeknd in a large specimen tank while he watches on in tears.
Finally, the video climaxes with a giant version of Twigs chasing down The Weeknd, before she lays in the rain in silence. Watch the video below.
Elsewhere, Twigs recently shared an insight into her upcoming “deep, emotional and honest” mixtape, which has yet to receive a release date and will act as the follow-up to her 2019 album ‘Magdalene’.
It came after Twigs confirmed back in October that she had written a full album over lockdown.
Speaking about the themes of the new mixtape, Twigs said: “It’s really deep, emotional and honest, but hopefully more golden tears than blue. I channelled my melancholy differently this time and it was so amazing.
“I made my next project thinking about all of u and my friends. It’s for getting ready and going out to and being with people who make u feel good, turnt litty bronzer in the sink shimmer on the bathroom floor.”
Of the potential guests and collaborators on the new mixtape, Twigs named Koreless, El Guincho, Cirkut, Mike Dean, Arca and “lots [of] beautiful others to be revealed soon, and some stun and special collabs”.
He then shared the first taste of his forthcoming fifth studio effort over the summer with ‘Take My Breath’. He has since teamed up with Swedish House Mafia and Post Malone on ‘Moth To A Flame’ and ‘One Right Now’ respectively.
Last month, he said his new album was almost complete, revealing that the “only thing missing is a couple [of] characters that are key to the narrative”.
