FKA twigs

Last month, FKA twigs made her return with the single “Cellophane” followed by a handful of performances on her worldwide ‘Magdalene’ tour. Today, she blesses us with new footage of a piano performance of the ballad recorded live at The Wallace Collection in London.

“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,” she stated in a press release. “It was an emotional experience to perform in that magical place, and to be wearing these beautiful clothes I’ve spent years collecting.”

During this spectacular session, twigs wears her own collection of vintage Vivienne Westwood pieces. FKA twigs is expected to drop the fifth installment of AVANTgarden on Instagram on May 23. This edition of the digital zine will feature exclusive images of twigs at the museum. Watch the intimate performance in the video above.

On this episode of The Dropcast, DJ Amrit stops by, fresh off an international tour with Tommy Genesis. We talk about life on the road, how everyone wants to be a “multi-hyphenate creative,” and finessing your way into the club. Check below.
