FKA Twigs’ ‘Meta Angel’ video shows off his masterful archery

Earlier this month, FKA Twigs followed up on their acclaimed 2019 LP Magdalene with the effort of 17 tracks, Caprisongs. Although the singer only previewed the recent album with two singles ahead of its official release, Twigs now returns with a video to her track “Meta Angel,” a delightfully auto-tuned anthem that flexes her tenor voice.

Directed by Aidan Zamiri, the visual opens with the disoriented singer in a field of grass. He then switches to an alternate version of her seeking a higher vantage point. She picks up a bow and arrow and shows off her masterful archery skills as she shoots her puzzled self straight through the heart.

Ahead of the visual’s release, Twigs gave some insight into the inspiration around his project. The singer said it was a compilation of various snapshots of her life that have brought her joy over the past few years:

CAPRISONS is my journey to myself through my incredible collaborators and friends. it’s bronzer in the sink, alcohol next to it, a cherry lollipop, apple juice when you’re thirsty, friends in the park, your favorite person, that phrase someone told you who changed everything, a club preview, your best friend who is always late but who brings the most to the party, meeting a friend at the airport, just conviviality. And my world: London, Hackney, Los Angeles, New York and Jamaica.

Watch the “Meta Angel” video above.

Caprisongs is out now through Young Recordings/Atlantic. Get it here.
