FKA twigs has been sending fans a message: ‘It’s time’

It looks like the follow-up to her 2014 debut album LP1 could be on its way

It’s been five years since FKA twigs released her first – and currently only – studio album, LP1. She’s remained busy since then, releasing the M3LL155X EP in 2015 and the loose single “Good to Love”; appearing in campaigns for Nike and Apple, a Baltimore dance documentary, and her Soundtrack 7 short film; and launching her own Instagram zine. Still, fans have been clamouring for new music since then, and it now looks like she’s readying the follow-up to her debut.

Over the bank holiday weekend, twigs made her first Twitter post for a few months, announcing a slew of tour dates and pointing towards a mailing list sign-up. She also shared a new portrait of herself on social media that recalls the artwork to LP1 and M3LL155X.

More importantly, as people have pointed out on Reddit, some of her fans received a hard copy of this portrait in the post with a handwritten message on the back: “You are one of my more loyal supporters, so I wanted to write to you directly to let you know – it’s time.” Online sleuths have further determined that she has licensed a new song called “Cellophane”.

While there’s no word on what will actually be coming out or when, we’re surely all smart enough to recognise the start of a new release campaign when we see it?
