Ahead of her European tour, Malaysian singer-turned-designer Yuna has released a new music video to her track Mannequin that's fresh off her Chapters album. Just like her previous videos (see Crush and Places To Go), Mannequin is as artistic as you'd expect, if not more.

The clip focuses on an estranged couple as they go about their daily routine while ignoring one another, but it's a different story once they are out of each other's sight.

"Mannequin is a story about two people in a relationship that has lost its spark," Yuna explained to Mass Appeal. "I had two of my friends who were dancers to be in the video. Brian Oh, the director, captured the emotions and movements of the dancers so perfectly. The whole idea of it was to tell viewers that there is still hope."

"When two people have been in a relationship for a long time, there will always be that one common ground that will keep them running back to each other...for this couple, it's music and dancing."

Let the video hit you right in the feels.
