FKA twigs is getting ready to drop her next album MAGDALENE, promoting her lead single “Cellophane” with an elegant performance live on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

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.

Scroll up to see FKA twigs perform “Cellophane” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the single off MAGDALENE which is slated to release November 8.

Elsewhere, The Game & Anderson .Paak have come together for a Cali-fueled track, “Stainless.”
