Last month FKA twigs shared a brand new song, “Cellophane,” via its cinematic Andrew Thomas Huang-directed video (it was one of our Songs of the Week). Now she has shared a new self-directed video where she performs “Cellophane” live on piano at The Wallace Collection, a public art collection in London. Watch it below.

FKA twigs had this to say about the video in a press release: “To perform ‘Cellophane’ at The Wallace Collection is a dream come true - this is my love letter to the artefacts and paintings held within its walls, and to one of my favorite designers Vivienne Westwood whose portrait collection was inspired by these pieces. It was an emotional experience to perform in that magical place, and to be wearing these beautiful clothes I’ve spent years collecting.”

FKA twigs wrote and produced “Cellophane” with Jeff Kleinman and Michael Uzowuru. The song is the first taste of her new album, which will be the long-awaited follow-up to her 2014-released debut album, LP1. The single is out now via Young Turks.

FKA twigs had this to say about the song and original video in a previous press release: “When I wrote ‘Cellophane’ over a year ago a visual narrative came to me immediately, I knew I had to learn how to pole-dance to bring it to life, and so that’s what I did. Thank you @andrewthomashuang, for elevating my vision beyond words. You are a visionary. @kellyvon thank you for being with me every step of the way on my precious pole yellow brick road. Working with you both on this is a dream come true.”
