The Young Turks star pulls a Beyoncé.
FKA twigs has released her M3LL155X EP, out now via Young Turks. The EP was made with collaborators Boots, tic and Cy An, and the bulk of it came from “a spontaneous creative period” a few months after the release of her LP1 that lasted just a few days.
In addition, four of the EP’s five tracks are accompanied by self-directed videos that come together to form a continuous piece that is described in press materials as “an aggressive statement conceptualising the process of feeling pregnant with pain, birthing creativity and liberation.”
Earlier this year, twigs told Complex that the EP was titled Melissa, the name of her “personal female energy.” As she explained: “I’ve never called it ‘Melissa’ before the EP. It’s not a weird alter ego. It’s just my way of separating it from myself.”
