Now that Christine and the Queens' self-titled LP has officially landed, the French act are giving the set's Perfume Genius-assisted "Jonathan" a post-release push via a new video. It's a neon-illuminated piece of choreography, and you can give it a peep online now.

As previously reported, the song is a duet between Héloïse Letissier and Perfume Genius' Mike Hadreas on the nature of relationships. Fittingly, the two musicians' movements are synched up in the vid, which finds them both seated beneath an elaborate light set up.

Another dancer makes their way into the scene sometime later, but the vocalists sit stone-faced and unawares. This, too, plays into the single's theme.

Letissier had previously explained of the single:
I wrote 'Jonathan' because my lover would ignore my existence outside of the closed, silent room I lived in; it became then imperious for me to sing, just to make sure I was still here. From the start, the song had two voices; one in English, one in French - longing for an answer I knew I would never get. So it was there, on my computer, crepuscular, like my own little Mrs. Butterfly's swan song.
-- Exclaim!
