FKA twigs' new "abstract autobiographical" short film Soundtrack 7 is airing after its TV premiere last night.

Watch the film now on the BBC iPlayer.

twigs directs the 35-minute film, which is choreographed by Aaron Sillis. It features twigs' songs "How's That", "Ultraviolet", "Good To Love", and more - press release explains it is "bound together by a... repeated recitation of Thomas Wyatt's poem ‘I Find No Peace'".

Soundtrack 7 was recorded this summer at Manchester's Old Granada Studios as part of twigs' week-long residency at the Manchester International Festival. The residency allowed audiences to observe as twigs, her crew, and her collaborators created "spontaneous" performance art.

twigs' says this new project is "flesh, sweat, feeling, muscle; no air brushing, no frills."

The film debuted last night on BBC Four. It will viewable at fkatwi.gs at a later date to be confirmed "shortly".

Earlier this year FKA twigs debuted new music at a Russian festival. Watch videos of the performance.
