On the back of his new album No Shape, released last week, Perfume Genius has released a new video for one of its most devastating highlights, “Die 4 You.” The clip was helmed by legendary director Floria Sigismondi, who has helped to create memorable videos for Rihanna, Christina Aguilera, and David Bowie, among others.

In the video, Mike Hadreas dances slowly in a sparse yet regal room, scattered with chairs and an indescribable hodgepodge sculpture that he gravitates toward. His intricate choreography and emotive body language make the clip effortlessly moving, despite that no one has a true sense of the meaning behind it. This is one that requires multiple viewings.
