Song premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 Radio show
FKA Twigs has unveiled a new track, ‘Figure 8’.
The singer-producer premiered the song earlier today (August 3) on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio show. Speaking to the DJ, Twigs revealed that the song had been written during a period of confusion that followed the release of her first album ‘LP1’ last year, and that it was partially inspired by voguing.
“Every hand movement that you do in voguing is a figure of 8, and that is eternity,” she said. “Every single move has to flow into the other like the eternal move that never stops moving.” Click below to listen to the song and interview, via Consequence of Sound.
Twigs has already been incorporating ‘Figure 8’ into her live show and the track will appear on her forthcoming EP, the release date and title of which have yet to be announced. The EP is also expected to feature ‘Glass & Patron’, which was released earlier this year.
A self-directed video for ‘Glass & Patron’ was posted in March. Watch below.
