Icelandic goddess Björk has announced she has a new album on the way called ‘Utopia’ which has been produced by Venezuelan electronic producer Arca, and along with this fantastic news Björk is also giving us the first taste with this gorgeous 7-minute love-song called ‘The Gate’.
Lose your shit over the new song below, and then check out the interview she did over the weekend with NOWNESS, where they delve into the emotions and feelings behind the new song, the album and the world of Björk.
“The Gate is essentially a love song, but i say ‘love’ in a more transcendent way. Vulnicura was about a very personal loss, and i think this new album is about a love that’s even greater. it’s about rediscovering love – but in a spiritual way, for lack of a better word.” – björk
‘Utopia’ is set for release in November but you can pre-order it now via Björk Shop.
