[迷迷音樂] FKA Twigs 為新曲猛練鋼管 MV公開美哭樂迷 

身兼創作歌手/製作人/舞者的 FKA Twigs ,在經歷對抗子宮肌瘤的難關後,於前日公開睽違四年的新單曲<Cellophane>MV,美得令不少樂迷感動落淚。

 

他在IG上表示,早在他一年前寫好這首的同時,腦海中即浮現視覺上想傳達的東西。為了這支MV,他特地花了六個月的時間練習綱管,「我這一生走來總是盡可能以自己的方式不斷練習、想盡辦法做到最好,不過這次沒辦法照著之前的方式來做。我必須打破所有至今為止所仰賴的方式、更深入地重新構築,然後重新開始。」他在推特上面說道。

 

 

FKA Twigs 本名為Tahliah Barnett,原本是一名舞者,曾經參與Kylie Minogue、Ed Sheeran、Jessie J……等眾多知名藝人的MV演出。會以「 FKA Twigs 」之名活動,正是因為當他跳舞時,骨頭常會發出咯咯聲,如同樹枝一般。

 

2012年他推出首張專輯《EP1》,實驗性的節拍配上甜美空靈的聲線吸引The XX所屬廠牌Young Turks的延攬,進而發行《EP2》,獲選為英國BBC Sound of 2014。2014年,他正式發行出道專輯《LP1》,榮獲英國的水晶音樂獎,並被提名全英音樂獎。

<Cellophane> MV請到與Björk多次合作的視覺藝術家 Andrew Thomas Huang 擔任導演,是至今為止最貼近其真實內心的作品。FKA Twigs 2018年5月曾在IG透露2017年12月接受了子宮肌瘤手術,當時發現到的腫瘤總共有六個,大小相當於兩顆蘋果、三顆奇異果和幾顆草莓重量跟懷孕六個月差不多,每天都得承受煎熬。手術前他感到非常害怕,儘管收到了周遭親朋好友眾多的關愛,但他仍感到十分孤獨,身為女性的自信也被擊破。不過,在與友人Kelly一起練習跳舞時,讓他再度感受到強力的自我。

dear friends, I am a very private person as u all know and I have gone back and forth in my mind whether to share that this year I have been recovering from laparoscopic surgery to remove 6 fibroid tumours from my uterus. the tumours were pretty huge, the size of 2 cooking apples 🍎 🍎, 3 kiwis 🥝 🥝 🥝 and a couple of 🍓🍓. a fruit bowl of pain everyday. the nurse said that the weight and size was like being 6 months pregnant. I tried to be brave but it was excruciating at times and to be honest I started to doubt if my body would ever feel the same again. I had surgery in December and I was so scared, despite lots of love from friends and family I felt really alone and my confidence as a woman was knocked. but… today whilst dancing with Kelly at the choreography house I felt like my strong self again for the first time in a while and it was magical. thank you precious body for healing, thank you for reminding me to be kind to myself, you are a wonderful thing, now go create and be other once again <3 I know that a lot of women suffer from fibroid tumours and I just wanted to say after my experience that you are amazing warriors and that you are not alone. you can get through this. and with this I let go of the pain… love always twigs 🌱
