The spectral world of her early work created a framework for the revival of tender and bruised r&b – the world may have finally caught up to ‘LP1’ but ‘Magdalene’ proves she’s still a visionary that no one can keep up with.

Through these 9 tracks, twigs manages to develop her stripped and raw style from a concept into a world to inhabit – this is a far grander work than she has ever previously put out, but it stops short of being self-indulgent. The (almost) eponymous ‘Mary Magdalene’ is the best example of this – landing 5 tracks in, the visionary sound she and Nico Jaar create serves as the core of a record that proudly has its heart on its sleeve. Innovative, challenging and enjoyable in equal measure, this is the follow up that 6 years of waiting has deserved.
