Figure 8 is the second single off of FKA twigs' third EP, MXLL155X. The song was announed as a second single on August 3, 2015 through Zane Lowe's Beats 1 Show. The song was featured in the EP's short movie.


Twigs revealed to the DJ that the evocative tune was written during a period of confusion that followed the success of her LP1 album in 2014, and that it was partially inspired by voguing. "I was feeling a bit sad and quite a bit lost," she said, "and I went to New York and I started to vogue." "Every hand movement that you do in voguing is a figure of 8, and that is eternity," Twigs added. "Every single move has to flow into the other like the eternal move that never stops moving."
