Björk has released the music video for “Lionsong,” a track off her most recent album Vulnicura. The video is the first from the new album and sees the singer-songwriter wearing a costume identical to the one on the cover art, with her heart visible and beating on her chest.
Inez and Vinoodh, longtime collaborators of Björk’s, directed the music video, telling Noisey that “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.”
