In an interview with i-D Magazine, leading up to the release of Magdalene , twigs discussed how the story of Mary Magdalene inspired her album.
I used to laugh to myself about how, as a woman, your story is often attached to the narrative of a man. I found a lot of power in the story of Mary Magdalene; a lot of dignity, a lot of grace, a lot of inspiration. That feels really poignant for me. Magdalene is somebody that I was obsessed with, even as a child.
Just the idea that, in the Bible, she was somebody that was painted as a prostitute, somebody that was painted as a woman that had to have all these demons exorcised from her, but in actual fact, she was an incredible healer and mystic, and she worked with herbs and oils, and in many ways, she was a doctor.
You know, what we know call a doctor in terms of using different skills to heal people, and her story, is still a bit of a mystery, but once thing that is certain is that she was not a prostitute or a woman that had to have sins expelled from her. So I think, just the idea of being able to, you know, getting in contact with her, explore the two sides of what it is to be a woman. Skip to content Search query All Results.

It is a rare occurrence, but that's what FKA twigs has delivered with Magdalene. The Independent UK.
The Observer UK. The New York Times.
In these songs, that would be vocation enough, a chance to find transcendence by giving everything. Twigs plants words with tenacious deliberation and care, but sometimes the result is over-studied, a gentle industrial emo. All this publication's reviews. User Reviews.
