FKA twigs reunites with Rick Nowels for new collaboration

24 Oct

British singer/songwriter Tahliah Barnett, professionally known as FKA twigs, has reunited with Rick Nowels for a new collaboration.

Nowels previously co-wrote and co-produced “Good to Love” for twigs, which is now available via iTunes and all other digital streaming outlets.

Recent credits by Nowels also include Lana Del Rey’s “Love,” Dua Lipa’s “Lost in Your Light,” Kesha’s “Hunt You Down,” Foxes’ “Wicked Love,” Melanie C’s “Unravelling,” and Adele’s “Why Do You Love Me?”

Meanwhile, FKA twigs is expected to release her sophomore studio collection – featuring further contributions from Sia, Andrew Wyatt, Levi Lennox, and Timmaz “Tic” Zolleyn – later this year via Young Turks Recordings.

The still-untitled project follows 2014’s “LP1,” which peaked to number thirty on the US Billboard 200 Albums Chart and spawned alliances with Emile Haynie (“Two Weeks”), Dev Hynes (“Hours”), Sampha (“Numbers”), Joel Compass (“Kicks”), Paul Epworth (“Pendulum”) and Arca (“Lights On”).
