FKA Twigs has confirmed the details of her anticipated second album.

Titled 'Magdalene', the nine-track record serves as the London artist's first full-length in five years and the follow up to 2014's 'LP1'. The album was produced by FKA Twigs, with "major contributions" from Nicolas Jaar, and was recorded over the last three years in London, New York and Los Angeles during a period of heartbreak, when the singer also underwent surgery to remove six tumours from her uterus. Twigs said:

"I never thought heartbreak could be so all-encompassing. I never thought that my body could stop working to the point that I couldn’t express myself physically in the ways that I have always loved and found so much solace. I have always practiced my way into being the best I could be, but I couldn’t do that this time, I was left with no option but to tear every process down.

"But the process of making this album has allowed me for the first time, and in the most real way, to find compassion when I have been at my most ungraceful, confused and fractured. I stopped judging myself and at that moment found hope in ‘Magdalene’. To her I am forever grateful."

Out on October 25 via Young Turks, the record boasts her latest single Cellophane, plus collaborations with Future, Skrillex and Jack Antonoff, all of whom worked with Twigs on Holy Terrain, which you can check out the video for below. Other guests include Oneohtrix Point Never, Cashmere Cat, and Benny Blanco.

The vocalist and dancer recently confirmed dates for a North American tour in support of the new record, with stops lined up in Vancouver, Seattle, Oakland, Denver, Saint Paul, Chicago, Toronto, Boston and Brooklyn during November. Tickets are on sale now.
