The Icelandic artist’s ninth album Utopia arrives November 24
Björk has shared “Blissing Me”, the second single from her upcoming ninth album Utopia.
Like “The Gate” in September, “Blissing Me” continues Björk’s infatuation with all things light, with the song characterised by flutes, lush string instruments, wandering beats from album co-producer Arca.
The track’s new video comes directed by Tim Walker and Emma Dalzell, with makeup by Hungry. According to a press release, it was shot in one single take in Iceland.
Utopia is about a search for paradise in an unstable world. “It is definitely about that search – and about being in love,” Björk told Dazed in a recent cover story. “Spending time with a person you enjoy on every level is obviously utopia, you know? I mean, it’s real. It’s when the dream becomes real.”
Utopia is out on November 24. Watch “Blissing Me” below.
