Bjork releases a gorgeous video for 'Lionsong'

Posted on

“Lionsong,” one of the more intriguing tracks on Vulnicura (Bjork’s big breakup album, inspired by her split from conceptual artist Matthew Barney), explores the strange moment in a dissolving relationship where hope that it repairs itself meets exhausted ambivalence. Noisey just premiered the song’s video, directed by Bjork’s longtime collaborators Inez & Vinoodh, which features the singer in the costume from the album cover—a latex bodysuit suggestive of BDSM paired with a headdress that echoes the halos in European religious art—overlaid with subtly complex visual effects by the production house Framestore.
