FKA twigs stopped by Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show on Monday to give a quick interview and debut the latest song off her upcoming EP.

Twigs has been performing "Figure 8" in her live shows for some time now, but for the rest of the world it is the first track to be released since Glass and Patron was dropped earlier this year. Dark, synthy and sinister, Figure 8 was inspired by the movements of Voguing and was written by Twigs after a visit to New York, where dancer Derek Prodigy taught her how to master the iconic move.

She explained in the interview: "I could practice my figure 8 in a mirror in the hotel room and listen to vogue music, or look at vogue legends on the internet... I felt like it made me feel sane, and 'Figure 8' is a reflection on that, I guess."

Madonna would be proud.
