Imogen Heap performs during NPR's Tiny Desk concert series.

Though she hasn't released a new album since 2014, Imogen Heap kept things fresh with Frou Frou's first new song in 17 years and a mind-blowing lesson in audio engineering for NPR's Tiny Desk series. 

The intimate concert, uploaded on Thursday (June 20), starts out with Frou Frou's "Guitar Song," with her old musical partner, Guy Sigsworth, on guitar along with some minimal keys. After Heap wows the Washington, D.C. office with her piano skills for the second song "Speeding Cars," she then dives into a little technology lesson.

Heap has always been an enchanting performer, but she's also an engineering ace. She teaches the audience about her Mi.Mu Gloves, which she helped develop, and shows that by making hand gestures in the air, she can control her voice. Plus, the movements just make her look that much more magical.

After the lesson, she goes into a re-worked version of the fan favorite "Hide and Seek."
