A new track has emerged from London artist FKA twigs’ debut album, ‘LP1’.
‘Video Girl’ links up with the lead single ‘Two Weeks’ in previewing Tahliah Barnett’s first work, the follow on to last year’s ‘EP1’ and ‘EP2’.
The track details the fallbacks and bad advice that surrounded her time spent as a backing dancer (she can be spotted in the background of Ed Sheeran, Kylie Minogue and Jessie J clips). “You’re gonna get yourself broke one day,” she sings, referencing the snappable nickname she picked up that also doubles up as her artist name.
“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,” Barnett said about the song in an interview last week.
Intentionally disjointed production-wise, the song’s also responsible for arguably the most forthright, autobiographical vocal line across the whole record. Listen below.
The full tracklisting for 'LP1', due out August 12, is as follows:
FKA Twigs is set to play two shows in the UK before the release of her debut album. Dates listed below.
