The song is based on the protagonist of Kathleen Winter’s novel Annabel: A Novel, which follows the struggles of a young hermaphrodite whose female genitalia was sewn shut as a baby. As any of the band’s fans would expect, Goldfrapp treats the subject delicately and with quiet grace. The video, directed by Lisa Gunning, is as poignant and gorgeous as the song.
