FKA Twigs is finally ready to deliver her anticipated sophomore album, MAGDELENE, this Friday via Young Turks. The experimental artist also let go of a final single on Monday (Nov. 4) to set the stage for the album with the pensive "sad day," which marks the fourth cut to arrive prior to the long-awaited LP.

Twigs lightly sings through heartbreak, as bombastic 808s mimic explosives going off in a warzone to fill the chaotic background. "Would you make a, make a, make a wish on my love," she sorrowfully repeats on the chorus.

"When I wrote my first album I was 23, and when I wrote my second album I was 30," she told Billboard of her growth as a songwriter since her debut. "I think I’ve always been truthful, but I’ve been digging deeper for Magdalene; I knew I didn’t want to release any new music until I’d found the bottom of the well."

The LP1 artist continues her North American tour Monday with a show in Seattle.
