English musician FKA twigs has become the latest artist to candidly discuss mental health issues, opening up about the topic on UK radio recently.
On Friday, FKA twigs is set to release Magdalene, her first new album in five years, and one that comes with a lot of anticipation excitement.
Having released a range of singles from the record already, FKA twigs shared her latest track, ‘Sad Day’, recently, speaking to BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac about the track (via The Daily Mail), admitting that she’s learned to come to terms with her feelings as time has gone on.
“It’s becoming apparent as I get older and as I get to know myself, it’s okay not to feel amazing all the time,” the musician explained.
“It’s okay for me, as a woman of colour, not to feel like a Nubian queen all the time, who’s perfectly sitting on my throne of greatness.”
“It’s just not my reality, but yet I know that I’m still perfect the way that I am, and I know that I still can do whatever I want, and I can dream big and I can achieve my dreams. And that has nothing to do with my completeness in the moment.”
As the chat continued, FKA twigs also discussed the lyrics from her song ‘Home With You’ which see her noting that “I’ve never seen a hero like me in a sci-fi“.
“I think that’s what I mean by ‘I’ve never seen a hero like me in a sci-fi.’ I haven’t,” she continued, “and now in this age where we’re obsessed with superheroes and all these huge franchises making these amazing big films,
“I’m yet to see a female character who is beautifully strong and perfect and flawed and is a full range.”
FKA twigs is set to release Magdalene on Friday, November 8th.
