Noisey premiered Björk’s music video for “Lionsong,” the first single off her forthcoming album Vulnicura. It’s her first official music video in 3 years and is directed by her longtime collaborators Inez & Vinoodh.
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. – Inez & Vinoodh
She’s in a latex suit, covered in feathers. Her limbs are elongated which makes it more fantastical. We can thank the visual effects production house Framestore for this gorgeous video.
