The cover star of Dazed's summer issue FKA twigs has dropped another stunning installment from her much anticipated debut record LP1. "Two Weeks" features twigs as an ancient Egyptian goddess from the near future and the song serves to highlight the strength of her unique voice, as well the natural playfulness of her intonation and vocal rhythms.

Sitting atop a throne in a temple somewhere in a mystical ocean, backed by a golden troupe of gyrating twigs-a-likes, the beautifully suspended video frames twigs as the auteur that she already is and the queen that she's set to become.

We go behind the scenes with Ignasi, the artist who created the illustrations for the video. In this exclusive interview, Ignasi gives us an insight into how he and twigs teamed up, the creative process and how he fell in love with the girl with the "amazing face, big eyes, weird EVERYTHING". Watch Ignasi reveal all below:
