FKA Twigs has teased a new techno-inspired album.

The 36-year-old musician has updated fans on the music she's been working on, and she revealed she had been working in the studio on a new record — which is "coming out this year" — with electronic musician and collaborator Koreless.

Speaking on her Discord server on Tuesday (January 16) — her birthday — she said: "I moved to Prague a couple summers ago, fell in love with techno. The album isn't techno but the spirit is there for real."

It sounds like the influence of electronic music will be felt heavily throughout the upcoming collection — which will be her first full length since 2019's Magdalene — as she referenced electronic duo Two Shell elsewhere in the chat.

Asked what music she's been listening to, she added: "I'm finishing my album so not really listening to a lot of music right now. I like Two Shell."

And although FKA Twigs — whose real name is Tahliah Barnett — has worked with some "talented friends" on the new LP, the album won't feature as many collaborators as 2022 mixtape CAPRISONGS.

She explained: "CAPRISONGS was collab heavy. I don't like to repeat myself."

At the time, she described the album as a way to document her journey "falling in love with music and herself all over again."

She posted on Instagram alongside the artwork at the time: "Hey i made you a mixtape, because when i feel you, i feel me and when i feel me, it feels good... CAPRISONGS is my journey back to myself through my amazing collaborators and friends."

Back in October, the Killer singer insisted she wouldn't be releasing any new music for a while after 85 of her demos were leaked online.

She announced on her Instagram Story at the time: "i got hacked somebody leaked 85 of my demos. well done. no new music for a while now bye. (sic)"
