In April,  FKA twigs  returned with her first new music in over three years in the form of new single “ Cellophane .” The song, her most vulnerable and connective to date, was accompanied by her most ambitious and powerful  video  yet, in collaboration with director  Andrew Thomas Huang . Together they provided an enticing glimpse of what to expect of FKA twigs’ second album; the follow up to her Mercury Prize and Brit Award nominated  LP1. 

Today, FKA twigs reveals a stunning live version of “Cellophane.”  “Cellophane, Live At The Wallace Collection”  features twigs’ first ever live piano performance. Directed by twigs herself, the intimacy of the performance strikes a deep contrast with the conceptual scale of Huang’s original video. Filmed in London’s renowned  The Wallace Collection , a place that has long inspired both twigs and one of her favourite designers,  Vivienne Westwood . In celebration of both the iconic space, and the designer she admires, twigs is seen wearing pieces from her own collection of vintage Westwood.

FKA twigs will release the fifth installment of her  AVANTgarden  digital Instagram zine tomorrow, featuring exclusive imagery from her time at The Wallace Collection.  AVANTgarden Issue 5  will be available via  https://www.instagram.com/fkatwigs.

“ t o perform cellophane at the wallace collection is a dream come true – this is my love letter to the artefacts and paintings held within its walls, and to one of my favourite designers vivienne westwood whose portrait collection was inspired by these pieces. it was an emotional experience to perform in that magical place, and to be wearing these beautiful clothes I’ve spent years collecting .” – FKA twigs

 

twigs recently dazzled audiences with a run of sold out live shows in Los Angeles’ Palace Theatre and New York’s Park Avenue Armory, and she’s set to perform a run of dates that include a sold-out hometown show at London’s Alexandra Palace Theatre on Tuesday, May 28th.
