FKA Twigs unveiled a new song, “Sad Day,” from her forthcoming album, Magdalene, set to arrive November 8th via Young Turks.
“Sad Day” finds Twigs caught in the throes of unrequited love, deep passion and heartbreak as the production shifts between an atmospheric synthscape and industrial stomp. Twigs’ vocals tie the instrumentals and the song’s themes together, reaching a kind of anguished serenity toward the end as she sings, “The city howls with a cry to seduce you/And claim you/So it’s time/And it’s a sad day for sure.”
