FKA twigs is back with a surprise EP and video project, the culmination of a year's worth of singles and rumors. M3LL155X — pronounced "Melissa," we're guessing — is the British R&B star's first major release since her debut full-length, last year's stunning LP1. The EP's existence and title have been known for a while, but it never had an official release date. Opening track "Figure 8" premiered less than two weeks ago on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show, and "Glass & Patron" was released as part of the YouTube Music Awards in March.
FKA twigs worked on the EP with producers BOOTS, Cy An, and tic, and in June she told Complex that its title refers to her "personal female energy." The EP is coupled with four self-directed videos, all of which come together to form the 16-minute clip above (including the previously released "Glass & Patron" video). M3LL155X is also available to stream on major services and purchase on iTunes.
