As anticipation mounts for the release of her second album MAGDALENE, 8th November 2019. FKA twigs today reveals more brand new music from the record. ‘Home With You’ is another stunning statement from a truly multi-faceted artist, with FKA twigs producing and writing (with Ethan P. Flynn) the track as well as directing and starring in the accompanying video.
It follows the release of previous MAGDALENE tracks ‘cellophane’ and ‘holy terrain’, her collaboration with Future that also featured an incredible FKA twigs-directed video. Marrying the kind of unique, innovative production twigs is renowned for with some of her most classic, direct songwriting to date, ‘home with you’ is another enticing glimpse of what fans can expect from MAGDALENE.
“You can take the girl out of the suburbs but you can’t take the suburbs out of the girl. ‘Home With You’ reinforced my reoccurring suspicion that when I’m in doubt, I should follow my gut and go home” FKA twigs on ‘Home With You’, October 2019.
MAGDALENE is the follow up to FKA twigs’ critically acclaimed Brit Award and Mercury Prize nominated debut LP1 (2014, Young Turks). Created in a period where her confidence was knocked following heartbreak and laparoscopic surgery, MAGDALENE is the sound of twigs reconfiguring, emotionally and physically. As she sings on ‘Mary Magdalene’, the album track that opened her highly-praised, sold-out live shows earlier in the year, “A woman’s time / A woman’s work / A woman’s time to embrace / She must put herself first”.
MAGDALENE is produced by FKA twigs and, as with LP1, the recording process has been directed by her at every stage. It was recorded between London, New York and Los Angeles over the last three years and, as previously reported, features major contributions from Nicolas Jaar alongside a host of other collaborators. MAGDALENE sees FKA twigs creating a whole new artistic universe and it is, without doubt, her most masterful work to date.

MAGDALENE will be available on CD, digitally and vinyl formats, including a limited edition, red-vinyl version. The album features artwork from acclaimed artist (and long-time FKA twigs collaborator) Matthew Stone.
FKA twigs recently announced an extensive set of European and North American MAGDALENE tour dates. Originally launched with a run of sold out shows in Los Angeles, New York, Berlin, London and Sydney in May, the MAGDALENE live experience weaves a tapestry of sound, performance, costume, pole dancing, Wushu, set design and lighting, and sees FKA twigs cementing herself as one of the most creative and experimental artists, performers, and directors of her generation. The run of dates will feature FKA twigs’ biggest headline show to date: a hometown show at London’s legendary O2 Academy Brixton on 25th November.
