FKA twigs made a whole new album during lockdown

Melt Festival 2020

FKA twigs has revealed that she had a productive quarantine. In a new interview with Grammy Museum’s Programs at Home series with Scott Goldman, the former Crack Magazine cover star has revealed that she wrote and recorded an entire album.

“I ended up, in actual fact, making a whole album in quarantine,” she told the host. “I just decided one day. It was kind of, maybe one-third of the way through and I just said, ‘you know what, I’m just going to make an album,’ and I just went and did it. And it was really amazing because I worked predominantly with an amazing artist and producer called El Guincho, and I did the whole thing with pretty much all of the collaborators over FaceTime.”

twigs went on to say that she’s finishing said record at the moment. Though she didn’t reveal any plans or timelines for releasing. “I was working with people I’d never met in real life and we were doing the whole thing over FaceTime and it was great because I couldn’t go in the studio at the beginning,” she said. “I would call some of my friends in America who made music and I would have a glass of wine and chill and write lyrics and talk about what the song’s about.”
