FKA Twigs blew us away at Lollapalooza, validating our theory that women would dominate the fest (as if there was, like, any question of that being untrue—the best in the game are female, trust us). Today the English singer-songwriter went on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 program to share her latest studio track, "Figure 8."

It begins moody, electronic and forceful in that classic FKA Twigs way before exploding with deep vocals. "Let me live," she sings, "through your voice."

At one point, Twigs lets out a breathy moan—the sound of exhaustion, but also intimacy, done in such an artistic way only FKA could master. Listen to it above (with an additional interview to boot), then peep our hot shots from this year's Lollapalooza.
