Ahead of her upcoming LP Magdalene, FKA twigs has dropped off a surprise collaboration with Future titled “Holy Terrain,” with production credits from Skrillex and Bleachers’ Jack Antonoff. The track finds FKA twigs gliding over a minimal, moody hip-hop beat while Future accents twigs’ vocalizing with distant ad libs before delivering his own spacey, auto-tuned bridge verse.
“Holy Terrain” is another portfolio diversifying piece from Skrillex who has spent the summer on a scorching release streak, most recently a floor-primed dance cut with Ty Dolla $ign and Boys Noize. This latest offering is the OWSLA head’s most reserved cut of the summer, effortlessly matching FKA twigs’ chilling vocal performance.
Magdalene is set to be released on October 25. It will be twigs’ first long-player since 2014’s LP1. In addition to Skrillex, Future and Antonoff’s contribution to the record, Nicolas Jaar, Cashmere Cat, and other taste-makers are credited with appearances on the forthcoming album. See the video for “Holy Terrain” below.
