FKA Twigs – “Video Girl”
FKA Twigs’ debut album LP1 comes out in a few weeks and so far, all we’ve heard is the fantastic “Two Weeks.” A new song called “Video Girl” has leaked from the album and it’s another great, slow-burning R&B track. In an interview with Pitchfork, she talked about this song: “I wrote that very shortly after I stopped being a video girl. When I got signed, I stopped dancing — I’d given up that part of my life. I would go out, and somebody would be like, ‘Oh, I recognize you!’ I’d hope it was because they’d heard my music, but they’d say, ‘Are you that girl from the Jessie J video?’ I’d always say ‘no,’ and they’d be like, ‘You’re lying!’ I’d say, ‘No! It’s not me.’ They’d say, ‘You look just like her.’ And I’d be like, ‘I know. So many people say that! It’s weird!'” Listen below.
LP1 comes out 8/12 via Young Turks.
