FKA twigs recorded a new album in quarantine

The follow-up to last year’s MAGDALENE was made with Rosalía producer El Guincho

FKA twigs has revealed that she used the COVID-19 lockdown period to record a follow-up to her 2019 album MAGDALENE.

Speaking to the Grammy Museum for their Programs at Home series, twigs said that she was “just finishing” the new record, and that she completed the vast majority of the record under quarantine.

“I just said ‘You know what, I’m going to make an album,’ and I just went and did it,” she said to the Grammys’ moderator, Scott Goldman.

She also revealed that she worked on the majority of the record with El Guincho, who has released solo records with twigs’s label Young Turks but is perhaps best known for producing records by Rosalía and, more recently, Lous and the Yakuza.

“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,” she said, though she did not reveal any of these other collaborations or further details of the project.
