FKA twigs has released the final instalment of her ‘CAPRIVIDS’ video series – you can see it below.

The clip for ‘Thank You Song’ will be the last video released from her ‘CAPRISONGS’ mixtape, which arrived back in January. In the video, which is directed by Aidan Zamiri, she can be seen riding around London on a night bus. In a statement on the clip, she said: “The ‘CAPRIVID’ for ‘Thank You Song’ is incredibly intimate. To me, it’s about embracing ones demons and finding things that are individual about one’s self, to make your life better.”

“The song to me is very personal,” she continued. “It’s really about thanking the person or even the aspect of yourself that’s got all of us through a really challenging couple of years… socially, financially, culturally. I guess in a nutshell, ‘Thank You Song’ is about riding with one’s inner demons and embracing them. Those demons can become your angel if you let it.”

The ‘Thank You Song’ video follows similar clips for ‘Which Way’, ‘Honda’, ‘Meta Angel’ and ’Oh My Love’ in the series, which was intended to deliver “short and punchy” visual accompaniments to a host of tracks from the well-received ‘CAPRISONGS’. It doesn’t represent her only foray into field of short filmmaking in recent months, though; in April, she premiered another short clip, ‘Playscape’, which was created as part of the 2022 International Woolmark Prize celebrations.

That video sees her dancing to the music of legendary London punk rockers X-Ray Spex. In a separate statement on it at the time, twigs said:  “It is an honour to be chosen by the Woolmark Prize to work with such talented designers and to create my first piece of work with Juliano Nunes, innovator of dance for the Avant Garden collective.”

In other twigs news, it emerged yesterday (May 3) that she finally has a trial date for her sexual battery case against the actor Shia Lebeouf. She will begin arguing her claims of sexual battery, assault, and intentional infliction of emotional distress before a Los Angeles jury at a trial starting April 17, 2023, a court official confirmed on Monday after a morning hearing.
