FKA twigs Makes A Stunning Late-Night Debut, Performs "Two Weeks" On The Tonight Show

Listen To A Surprising, Previously Unreleased Track From FKA Twigs

FKA twigs Announces Surprise Show At Paisley Park Tomorrow Night

FKA Twigs has made a kind of woozy, half-disintegrated R&B aesthetic her trademark and on her stellar 2014 release LP1 seemed to handle it with such grace that one might have guessed that it's always been her main aesthetic. That, however, is not the case if we're to believe reports that an unreleased and previously-unheard track entitled "Walk 'Til You're Dead," which just surfaced on Youtube this week, is in fact a piece of her early work. Hypetrak estimates that the recording was made around 2007 and, given its pop-friendly acoustic guitar, church-style organs and vocals so clear they seem destined for some sort of car insurance commercial. Still, Twigs's singing is great, and now that she's become such a groundbreaking and captivating musician, we can listen to this early cut and smile, knowing full well what was to come. Listen to "Walk 'Til You're Dead" below and check out FKA Twigs's full summer tour schedule below. If for some reason you still haven't scooped up her brilliant LP1, get over to iTunes and correct your steering.
