FKA Twigs gets straight-up experimental on “Pendulum,” the newest track to drop from her upcoming record, LP1.
The nouveau Artist Formerly Known dropped the track on Twitter Tuesday, calling it one of her favorite songs on the record and sharing an image of the singer suspended from the ceiling by what appear to be her braids. Yikes!

A thoroughly atmospheric track, “Pendulum” is a spare kind of thing hung with pattering drums — laid over a deeper, thrumming heartbeat — and laced with her ethereal, overlapping vocals.
We’ve heard a few tracks so far from the R&B artist (born Tahliah Barnett), including “Two Weeks” and its accompanying video and the newly released “Video Girl,” which recalls Barnett’s days as a dancer for the likes of Jessie J and Ed Sheeran.
LP1 drops August 12.
