Björk Drops Lionsong Video - The Reykjavik Grapevine

Björk Drops Lionsong Video

Published March 12, 2015

Björk has released the first video from “Vulnicura”. It’s for the album’s second track, “Lionsong”, and features some fleshy wobbly shapes, and Björk herself performing the song in the already-iconic outfit seen in the album artwork.

The video was made with Björk’s long-time visual collaborators Inez & Vinoodh, who said: “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.”
