We’ve always known Björk for her artistic work in music videos, art installations and live performances. She strikes gold again when she teams up with longtime collaborators Inez & Vinoodh. Coming off her new album, they developed a music video for her track “Lionsong” that matches her longtime outlandish costumes and personas.
Dressed up in alternating costumes between bright and flower-ish like a dandelion from her album’s cover art to morose and spandex-filled, Björk moves her body to the song’s dark mood. The directors described the new music video as “Björk’s character for ‘Lionsong’ had to be smooth like a spider waiting in her web and seductive like a Balinese dancer cast in bronze. She is seen as if under a microscope, baring her heart while luring us inside the bloody galaxy of her own wound.”
The track comes off her album Vulnicura.
