Watch Björk’s breathtaking first TV performance in eight years

A very rare glimpse at her stunning live show

Björk has made her television return on Later…With Jools Holland, performing “Courtship” and “The Anchor Song”.

It’s been eight years since the musician last played on TV. Surrounded by lush plants and greenery and wearing a fantastical facepiece by embroidery artist James Merry, the artist performed “Courtship” from her 2017 album Utopia, accompanied by a pack of flutists. She also performed a version of “The Anchor Song” from her first album, 1993’s Debut.

Björk is due to play All Points East festival in London this weekend, so this performance looks like a sneak peek of what she’s got planned. The musician also recently released a three-track remix EP with edits of “Arisen My Senses” by Lanark Artefax, Jlin, and Kelly Lee Owens. She will also be the main musical guest on Jools later in May. 

The Breeders also played on the program, performing “Wait in the Car” and the classic “Cannonball”.
