The Gate: Björk Releases Cosmic New Video, Reveals Album Title

Published September 18, 2017

Björk has released the first video from her forthcoming album. It’s for “The Gate,” which has also been released as a limited edition one-sided 12″. The track picks up where ‘Vulnicura’ left off, continuing the themes of loss and healing.

The video is by Andrew Huang, a long-time collaborator who also worked on the virtual reality works seen in the Björk: Digital” exhibition. “The Gate picks up where 2015’s Vulnicura left off,” says Andrew, talking to NOWNESS. “The doorway lies within the [chest] wound from Vulnicura… I am especially proud of this film as I feel it is a culmination of my five-year collaboration with Björk and James Merry. It’s been such a nourishing three-way relationship and this film is the perfect synthesis of our brains and our hearts. Having Alessandro Michele’s design as the centerpiece in this film is a dream.”

Björk also recently revealed that the working title for the album is “Utopia,” in a recent interview for Nowness. The album release date is rumoured to be November 2017.
