FKA Twigs has shared a new video for her track ‘Video Girl’ hours before the Mercury Prize ceremony takes place.
Twigs is the favourite to win tonight’s prize after the bookies revealed yesterday that her odds were slashed from 4/1 to 11/4.
The 26-year-old singer has gained attention in the past for releasing visually enticing videos, including ‘Two Weeks’, which portrayed her as rock royalty, and ‘#throughglass’, a promotional video for Google that saw her perform a medley of her re-scored songs while modelling a pair of Google Glass.
The new black and white film for ‘Video Girl’ sees Twigs watch a death row inmate receive a lethal injection from an observation room before reviving him by dancing and singing around the body.
Twigs was in the news this month for labelling racist trolls “unacceptable” after being made a target of abuse for some fans of the actor Robert Pattinson, whom she has been romantically linked to in recent weeks.
‘Video Girl’ is the latest release from her debut album ‘LP1’. Last week, the singer announced she would be headlining London’s Roundhouse on February 19 and 20, 2015.
