FKA twigs recently sat down with documentary filmmaker Louis Theroux as part of the Grounded podcast, where she gave an update regarding her upcoming studio album. The performer also hinted that she would release new music this week during a recent Instagram post.
During her interview with Theroux, FKA twigs explained that this upcoming project was made alongside people she had never collaborated with before, to reflect how it was recorded during the quarantine. According to her October 2020 interview with Scott Goldman, one of these collaborators is producer El Guancho, who maintained contact with FKA twigs over a number of Face Time calls. El Guancho is best known for his work with singer-songwriter Rosalía, who he co-produced El mal querer for.

It’s a real product of 2020. ”
