FKA Twigs unveils new song, 'Sad Day'

"Sad Day" will appear on FKA Twigs' forthcoming new album, "Magdalene," which will arrive on November 8 via Young Turks.

The pensive offering from "Magdalene" finds Twigs caught in the turmoil of unrequited love and heartbreak, as she croons "I can imagine a world when my arms are embraced around you/I lie naked and pure/With intentions to cleanse you and take you."

As revealed in a Pitchfork cover story, an accompanying music video for "Sad Day" is on its way.

Twigs has reportedly worked on "an ambitious visual collaboration" with Emmy-nominated director Hiro Murai, who will be helming his first music video since Childish Gambino's "This Is America."

Although details about the project are still scarce to this date, the visual will apparently involve Twigs showing off her skills in the Chinese martial art wushu.

"Sad Day" arrives a few days ahead of the release of "Magdalene," following the previously issued "Cellophane," "Home With You" and "Holy Terrain" featuring Future.

The full-length, which is Twigs' sophomore studio album, will arrive five years after her debut "LP1."

In a recent sit-down with Billboard, the experimental artist opened up about her growth as a songwriter since "LP1." 

"When I wrote my first album I was 23, and when I wrote my second album I was 30. I think I've always been truthful, but I've been digging deeper for Magdalene; I knew I didn't want to release any new music until I'd found the bottom of the well," she explained.

Last week, Twigs launched the second leg of her North American tour in support of "Magdalene," which will wrap on November 20 in Brooklyn, New York City.
