Björk is releasing a new album, Fossora, on September 30. Now she has shared the album’s first single, “Atopos,” via a weird and wonderful video for the new song. Viðar Logi directed the video, which features the Icelandic singer in two different ellaborate outfits as she performs with a bass clarinet sextet and a DJ. Watch it below.
In a tweet yesterday, Björk wrote that the song “is a good intro …. kinda like Fossora’s passport. Sonically a heavy bottom-ended bass world we have 6 bass clarinets, punchy sub drilling, nesting and digging us into the ground.”
Previously Björk shared the album’s cover art and tracklist.
In a previous Instagram statement alongside the album’s announcement, Björk wrote:
“each album always starts with a feeling
that I try to shape into sound
this time around
the feeling was landing
( after my last album Utopia which was all island in the clouds element air and no bass )
on the earth and digging my feet into the ground”
