Today marks the release of a limited edition 12″ vinyl of Björk‘s “The Gate“, the first single from her forthcoming ninth album. The single, co-produced by Arca, was paired with an incredible film clip. The film, based on the affecting and emotional lyrics of the song, was directed by long-time collaborator and friend Andrew Thomas Huang, with creative direction by Björk, Alessandro Michele and James Merry.
“Björk has never shied away from bold metaphors, and here, with her egg-shaped portal into love’s domain, she aims bigger than ever.
Whatever comes next, this snapshot of love’s gestation feels nothing short of magical.”
