Last year, British experimental artist Twigs turned heads with her stunning debut EP and a series of beyond-peculiar videos. Since then, she’s changed her name to FKA Twigs, prepped a four-song EP, and signed with Young Turks. The label, home to The xx, SBTRKT, John Talabot, among others, will release FKA Twigs’ EP2 on September 9th.
In anticipation, FKA Twigs has shared “Water Me”, a new single produced by Kanye collaborator Arca. Quiet and ambient, yet still packing a sense of haunting urgency, it’s especially moving when she sadly (and repeatedly) confesses, “He won’t make love to me now…” Check it out via the brilliant Jessa Kanda-directed music video below.
