Björk's New Music Video is a Hazey Wonderland
Stop what you’re doing—the first single off of Björk’s new album just dropped, and with it, a seriously dreamy music video. Though we’ve come to expect some crazy intense visuals from Björk, this new video is a step above. Think all your childhood fantasies of wonderland, combined with trippy animals, kaleidoscope light effects, a glowing orb, and a holographic Gucci dress that took 870 hours to construct. Check out the full video for “The Gate” below, and be prepared.
“The Gate” is available to stream now and can be bought on limited edition 12 inch vinyl from September 22. It is the first taste of Björk’s new album, titled Utopia. “‘The Gate’ is essentially a love song, but I say ‘love’ in a more transcendent way,” Björk has previously said of the seven-minute, synth-guided track. “Vulnicura was about a very personal loss, and I think this new album is about a love that’s even greater. It’s about rediscovering love—but in a spiritual way, for lack of a better word.”
