Watch Björk’s Hypnotic Music Video for Her New Song, “The Gate”




FYI. Björk has just released a new track, “The Gate,” from her forthcoming album. And, with it, comes a hypnotic new video, the product of a collaboration between Björk, artist Andrew Thomas Huang, and Gucci’s Alessandro Michele.

About the video, Andrew Thomas Huang has this to say:

The Gate picks up where 2015’s Vulnicura left off. It is the first glimpse into Björk’s utopia. The doorway lies within the wound from Vulnicura, which now appears transformed into a prismatic portal channeled between the chests of two lovers. Not lovers in the quotidian romantic sense, but in a broader cosmological way. As a throughway into Bjork’s new album, The Gate is a declaration of hope sung by a woman refracted and re-formed into a luminous whole.

Björk’s new album, Utopia, is due out in November. The new video is made available by Nowness.
