Björk Launches An Artful Video For “Lionsong”

    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.
