Singapore — British pop singer FKA Twigs returns with her debut new single ‘Cellophane’ after three years that’s bound to tug heartstrings around the world. The single will lead up to her newly announced yet untitled second album.

‘Cellophane’ opens with just a simple piano ballad, showcasing the artist’s haunting voice amidst a slight beatbox rhythm. Her pleads are accompanied by lyrics like,

And I, just want to feel you're there

And I don't want to have to share our love

I try, but I get overwhelmed

When you're gone I have no one to tell

After a public separation from ‘Twilight’ actor Robert Pattinson and battling fibroid tumours, FKA has poured her energy into making new music. Reading the lines, one can’t help but draw the pain she’s written to her past love. Her voice trails after the piano keys, often stopping low with a heavy weight, then rise at the top of her soprano. FKA is back at her element and she commands your attention.
