“Thank you to everybody who helped me along the way to bring my vision to life,” she added. “It’s been magical and somehow today ‘Magdalene’ feels more prevalent to me than ever before.”

The musician also announced that she would be celebrating the anniversary throughout this week with “visual excerpts and stories” from herself and collaborators, as well as a “special merch drop”.

Following her election to Vice President-elect, Harris paid tribute to all the women who “paved the way” for her to take the office at a Biden victory event. “While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last,” she promised.

Meanwhile, Twigs has written a whole new album during the coronavirus lockdown. “I just decided one day,” she said in a recent interview. “It was 1/3 of the way through and I just went and did it.

“It was really amazing because I worked predominantly with an amazing artist and producer called El Guincho, and I did the whole thing with pretty much all of the collaborators over FaceTime.”
