FKA twigs Releases New Single “Don’t Judge Me”

FKA twigs isn’t interested in your opinion…

The 33-year-old part-Spanish singer has released the single “Don’t Judge Me,” feauring UK drill rapper Headie One and English producer Fred again

FKA twigs

It’s FKA twigs’ first new single since 2019.

She also co-directed the accompanying visual with Emmanuel Adjei, which highlights Black models and dancers in utter anguish while encircling Kara Walker‘s Fons Americanus sculpture.

The fountain, inspired by the Victoria Memorial in front of Buckingham Palace, captures Black people’s historic plight during the transatlantic slave trade and the interconnected suffering endured by Black people from Africa, America and Europe. Twigs herself is flung across rooms and knocked down to the ground in her own twisted choreography.

“So proud to release ‘don’t judge me’ into the world. this project is very personal and special to me,” she wrote on Instagram. “It was an honour to shoot with kara walkers fountain exploring the interconnection of black history between africa, america and europe. thank you to everyone for making don’t judge me come to life.”

FKA twigs (real name Tahliah Debrett Barnett) filed a lawsuit against her ex-boyfriend Shia LaBeouf in December over claims of sexual battery and “relentless abuse” during their relationship. She discussed it at length on the Grounded With Louis Theroux podcast Monday and suggested her allegedly abusive relationship didn’t serve as the inspiration for the upcoming third studio album she created during the pandemic.

“I spent so much time in darkness with him that in lockdown I’ve been missing my friends and going out, getting ready, and dancing,” she told Theroux.

During an interview for the Grammy Museum‘s Programs at Home series in October, FKA twigs revealed that she was finishing up her latest album. Her last album, Magdalene, which she released in November 2019, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart. She also name-dropped Spanish producer El Guincho as one of her collaborators on the untitled album, as well as songwriters Billy Walsh and Ali Tamposi.

“I’ve got more collaborations and features on this album than I’ve ever had before,” she added. “The majority of the people I’ve never met in real life. We spent a lot of time with each other over FaceTime. It’s a real product of 2020.”

J Balvin Discusses Artist Fernando Botero’s ’20 de Julio’ as Part of Google Arts & Culture’s Art Zoom Series

J Balvin is offering up a virtual art lesson…

The new Art Zoom series features the Renaissance works coming out of Europe, with Grimes’ lively exploration of Pieter Bruegel the Elder‘s apocalyptic The Fall of Rebel Angels. Meanwhile, MAGDALENEsinger FKA twigs appropriately presents Artemisia Gentileschi’s Mary Magdalene in Ecstasy.

Balvin reminisces on the chaos and hope inColombian figurative artist and sculptor Fernando Botero’s 20 de Julio. His signature style, also known as “Boterismo“, depicts people and figures in large, exaggerated volume, which can represent political criticism or humor, depending on the piece.

FKA-twigs

The set launches with 11,000 equivalent album units (5,000 in album sales), according to Nielsen Music.

FKA Twigs adds her second No. 1, following her first full-length, LP1, which topped the chart in September 2014.

FKA Twigs Releases New Pensive Single “Sad Day”

FKA Twigs is feeling pensive…

The 31-year-old part-Spanish singer has released the single “Sad Day,” the fourth cut to arrive from her long awaited sophomore album, Magdalene.

FKA Twigs

FKA Twigs lightly sings through heartbreak, as bombastic 808s mimic explosives going off in a warzone to fill the chaotic background. 

“Would you make a, make a, make a wish on my love,” she sorrowfully repeats on the chorus.

“When I wrote my first album I was 23, and when I wrote my second album I was 30,” she told Billboard of her growth as a songwriter since her debut. “I think I’ve always been truthful, but I’ve been digging deeper for Magdalene; I knew I didn’t want to release any new music until I’d found the bottom of the well.”

FKA Twigs’ new album will be released this Friday, November 8 via Young Turks

The LP1 artist continues her North American tour this week with a show in Seattle.
