FKA Twigs follows up on an announcement of an eight-date tour with news of a new single titled “Cellophane.” The song will mark the first time in four years she has dropped new music.
On social media, Twigs (real name Tahliah Debrett Barnett) referenced a rebuilding process. She wrote, “Throughout my life I’ve practiced my way to being the best I could be. It didn’t work this time. I had to tear down every process I’d ever relied on. Go deeper. Rebuild. Start again.”
While Twigs hasn’t released music in four years, she’s stayed busy. She launched a fanzine titled AVANTGarden in October 2017 and following recovery from fibroid surgery in December 2017, she began to study the art of pole dancing.
According to her announcement, “Cellophane” will drop at 2:30 PM EST on April 24, 2019. Her tour kicks off in Los Angeles on May 7th.
