Grammy-nominated vocalist, songwriter, lyricist and producer FKA twigs releases new single ‘KILLER’ via Atlantic Records (USA) / Young (UK). Listen to it here. The track marks a new era for the prolific artist following on from acclaimed mixtape CAPRISONGS which received high praise from the likes of The FADER, NYLON, The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Guardian and many more. “KILLER” was written by FKA twigs, Jimmy Napes, Amanda Ghost and Jonny Coffer, it was produced by FKA twigs and Jonny Coffer with additional production by El Guincho. The track explores the inner turmoil of heartbreak and a love so deep it’s lethal.
Of “KILLER,” FKA twigs explains: ‘“It’s dangerous to be a woman in love”- when at its worst the effects of heart break can define one’s trajectory much more than the beauty of the love itself, in my song ‘Killer’ I explore this concept. The navigation, the hunt and the kill. The death of promises, dreams and the future that was once promised. But like the wildest plucked roses, I find myself more beautiful delicately wilted, in shadow, forced solace, darkened at the edges and achingly thirsting to be tended to again.’
Last Friday, FKA twigs unveiled an NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert including a stunning performance of “KILLER.”
Alongside releasing more music this year, FKA twigs will be starring alongside Bill Skarsgård in modern reimagining of the beloved character, THE CROW, based on the original graphic novel by James O’Barr, directed by Rupert Sanders.
