After the fantastical mix of the cosmos and geometric shapes in her last video for “The Gate”, the Icelandic musician Bjork has now released a video for “Blissing Me”. The singer’s voice delicately rises above notes played on harps in an understated video with a purified melody that marks a clear break from the darkness of her 2015 opus “Vulnicura” (the album made after her break up with director and sculptor Matthew Barney). For her ninth studio album, Bjork once again calls upon Venezuelan producer Arca, a Kanye West collaborator, who co-wrote most of the tracks. “Utopia” announces a melancholic and flamboyant world with the extravagant allure of dawn serenades.
Bjork, Utopia, released on November 24th 2017.
