Much like the music video unveiled back in April, the artist was seen performing a number of slow, graceful pole-dancing sequences accompanied by the sound of a grand piano and cello. The original track measures just under three and a half minutes and shines a light on twigs’ elastic voice. “Didn’t I do it for you? / Why don’t I do it for you?” / Why won’t you do it for me? / When all I do is for you?” she sings, “They want to see us, want to see us alone / They want to see us, want to see us apart.” After a bevy of demanding sequences, Twigs’ dance ended after eloquent notes of flowing piano scales and cello strings, dimming the lights as she curled up and gently fell to the floor.
