Our two cover stars, Grace Jones and FKA twigs, are the perfect mix of an idea we're calling "Nowstalgia," or the ways we can look into the past to see what the future will be and create, reinterpret, and remix old ideas into something thrillingly new. Both complete originals, Jones continues to inspire successive generations with her unyielding commitment to her art and individuality while twigs has emerged as one of the most exciting young artists in music today with her mix of R&B, modern dance and stage shows that are reminiscent of East Village performance art while remaining entirely fresh and innovative.
