Writing in an introduction to the ‘Cellophane’ clip, Twigs said of the video: “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 andrew, for elevating my vision beyond words. you are a visionary. kelly, 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.”
