FKA twigs has released a new EP called M3LL155X and shared a stunning 16-minute visual video.
Following the critical success of her debut 2014 album LP1, twigs shared a new song called ‘Figure 8’ earlier this month. Yesterday she surprised the blogosphere with an unexpected EP release entitled M3LL155X. The five-song EP is available through Young Turks and features ‘Figure 8’, the previously-released “Glass & Patron”, as well as three brand new tracks.
Not only that, in typical twigs style, the alt-r&b artist has unveiled a captivating and provocative 16-minute video with accompanying visuals for ‘Figure 8’, ‘I’m Your Doll’, ‘In Time’, and the YouTube Awards clip for ‘Glass & Patron’.
The fascinating video features a cameo from fashion icon Michèle Lamy. The narrative sees twigs pose as a live sex doll in a darkly atmospheric scene, before quite literally and metaphorically giving birth to a stunning creative outpouring of beautiful choreography, not to mention some awesome vogueing sequences.
The four film pieces are described in a press release as, “an aggressive statement conceptualising the process of feeling pregnant with pain, birthing creativity and liberation.”
