FKA twigs

FKA twigs is "constantly" making new music.

The 26-year-old singer - whose real name is Tahliah Barnett - already has a host of new material for the follow-up to 'LP1', which was released in August this year, but doesn't know what will make the grade for her next record until she settles down to work on her new album.

Asked about her next album, she said: "I'm constantly making music.

"I don't really think about what format its going to take until I've got a bunch of things on the table and I think about it then."

Earlier this month, 'Skyfall' hitmaker Adele made a rare public appearance to see FKA twigs perform in London and though the 'Pendulum' singer admits they have never spoken before, she is now looking forward to meeting the award-winning star because they have things in common now.

Twigs, who missed out on picking up the Barclaycard Mercury Prize last night after her shortlisted album lost out to Young Fathers' record 'Dead', said: "I haven't met Adele, I once saw her at the XL Christmas party but I didn't say hi, but next time I see her we'll have a talking point."

The singer recently admitted she has been bombarded with racist abuse over her relationship with Robert Pattinson.

She tweeted: "I am genuinely shocked and disgusted at the amount of racism that has been infecting my account the past week.

"Racism is unacceptable in the real world and it's unacceptable online."
