For those in the know, FKA twigs’ forthcoming debut album 'LP1' is one of the most highly-anticipated releases of this year… and by in the know, I mean people like smart cookie [and rather vocal fan], Lorde, who has tweeted numerous times about the British musician.

And if dancing is a love of yours, then it may also interest you to know that Twigs - whose real name is Tahliah Barnett - moved to London when she was 17 to pursue a career in dance, going on to appear in music videos for the likes of Ed Sheeran and Jessie J.

In a recent interview with Pitchfork, Twigs said: "I’m in so many videos. There was a period of about two years where I danced for everyone: Kylie Minogue, Ed Sheeran, Jessie J, Taio Cruz. It got to the point where my fees were double the other girls’, and I wouldn't even have to audition. They'd call my agent directly and say, "We want twigs to come in.” I had a reputation for being reliable. When the camera was on, I'd be the one-take wonder, so a lot of directors liked working with me."
