Aside the syrupy lead single "Two Weeks" and its regal video, London R&B auteur FKA twigs (born Tahliah Barnett) hasn't offered much to tease her debut album LP1. Fortunately however, just two weeks before that record's release, another shadowy track called "Video Girl" has made its way to the internet. Bubbling synthesizer weirdness drives Barnett's vocal manipulations and conjures the same sort of uneasy sensuality that made EP2 one of SPIN's Best R&B Albums of 2013. This new song is likely a leak, so it may not stick around forever, but for now listen to a stream below, via Tecoapple.

LP1 is due August 12 on Young Turks.
