FKA Twigs announces Soundtrack 7 film release

21 July 2016, 09:49 | Written by Laurence Day

FKA Twigs has announced a premiere for her new film Soundtrack 7, recorded last year as part of a residency at Manchester's International FEstival.

The 52-minute film is described as an “abstract autobiographical piece” and will feature music from EP2 (including "How's That" and "Ultraviolet") and "Good To Love" from earlier this year. As well as Soundtrack 7, Twigs will debut a self-directed short film featuring tracks from the M3LL155X EP.

The premiere of Soundtrack 7 will take place 3 August at the Brooklyn Academy Of Music. Tickets are available now.

A blurb on the venue's website reads:

"Shot on location for the Manchester International Festival, the film shows the work Twigs created and filmed one per day during her week-long residency last year. Conceptualized as an abstract autobiographical piece, Soundtrack 7 includes performances set to 'How’s That', 'Ultraviolet', and 'Good To Love' among others, and is bound together by a striking, repeated recitation of Thomas Wyatt’s poem 'I Find No Peace' (an excerpt from which opened twigs’ critically acclaimed LP1). Emphasizing the grit and physicality of dance, twigs describes her latest project as 'flesh, sweat, feeling, muscle, and a live movement, no air brushing, no frills.'"

Twigs recently performed new music at a Russian festival - watch clips of the show now.
