“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.
