Listen to FKA twigs’ new heartbreak song, ‘Killer’

‘It’s dangerous to be a woman in love’

FKA twigs has officially shared her latest single “Killer“.

The singer teased the release on Twitter earlier this month, describing it as a song “for baddies with a tear in their eye”.

“It’s dangerous to be a woman in love,” twigs said. “When at its worst, the effects of heartbreak 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,” she added.

Twigs first premiered the song during NPR’s Tiny Desk last week while performing at London’s St. Matthias Church.
