In Fiona Apple’s new video for “Hot Knife,” off 2012′s The Idler Wheel, we get to see the many sides of the singer.

The clip, shot by The Master director (and Apple’s ex) Paul Thomas Anderson, starts with her banging the opening drum beats of the song before focusing in on her mouth to watch her enunciate, “If I’m butter, then he’s a hot knife.”

Soon Anderson switches to a black and white split screen of Apple and her sister, Maude Maggart, who lends her voice to the track. The two sing the chorus over and over again while staring at each other, never breaking eye contact.

By the time it’s all said and done we get five side-by-side shots of Apple singing, drumming and convalescing along to the song.

Apple and Anderson have previously teamed up for numerous videos including “Paper Bag,” “Fast As You Can” and“Limp,”  all off her 1999 album, When The Pawn. 

Below, watch “Hot Knife.”
