FKA twigs 'Live At The Wallace Collection’

FKA twigs has released 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 at London’s The Wallace Collection, a place that has long inspired both twigs and one of her favourite designers, Vivienne Westwood.

From FKA twigs:

“To 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 returned with her first new music in over three years in the form of new single “Cellophane.” The song, was accompanied by an video, 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.

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.
