FKA twigs: Two Weeks

After self-releasing 'EP1' in 2012 and dropping 'EP2' via UK label Young Turks last year, FKA twigs (born Tahliah Barnett) has taken the next logical step and named her eagerly awaited debut full-length 'LP1'; it will be out August 12.

The 26-year-old London based singer-songwriter-dancer also co-creates most of her videos, including the controversial 2013 clip for the track 'Papi Pacify'.  The new stellar video for the upcoming album track "Two Weeks" however was shot by acclaimed Los Angeles based Iranian-American-Australian director/photographer Nabil Elderkin who has done several high profile clips for Frank Ocean and Kanye West as well as many others recording artists/bands.

FKA twig has nine dates scheduled for July and August in the UK and North America; only one of these shows is a festival gig.   (incl. tour schedule)
