On August 12, our current favorite UK songbird, FKA twigs, will release her highly anticipated debut album, LP1. We've already heard the sensual and aggressive first single "Two Weeks"; now listen to "Video Girl," a song concerning twigs' past as a music video dancer.
Speaking to Pitchfork earlier this year, twigs said this of the song:
“I wrote that very shortly after I stopped being a video girl. When I got signed, I stopped dancing — I’d given up that part of my life. I would go out, and somebody would be like, ’Oh, I recognize you!’ I’d hope it was because they’d heard my music, but they’d say, ’Are you that girl from the Jessie J video?’ I’d always say ’no,’ and they’d be like, ’You’re lying!’ I’d say, ’No! It’s not me.’ They’d say, ’You look just like her.’ And I’d be like, ’I know. So many people say that! It’s weird!”
