The Queen of outre creativity, Björk, has announced the imminent release of a new single. Entitled The Gate it will be available in digital format on 18th September and as a single-sided 12″ vinyl from 22nd.
Fingers on the buzzers as the track is available to pre-order now!
The announcement comes on the back of an image of a hand-written post-it note that the Icelander posted to her IG feed earlier in August when the singer teased the release of her next album.
Speaking about the lead single from her upcoming LP Björk says:-“‘The Gate’ is essentially a love song, but I say ‘love’ in a more transcendent way. Vulnicura was about a very personal loss, and I think this new album is about a love that’s even greater. It’s about rediscovering love – but in a spiritual way, for lack of a better word.”
The Nordic innovator went on to explain that the new album is an exploration of utopia, questioning the possibility and viability of the perfect paradise.
Expanding on the theme Björk says:- “If we’re gonna survive not only my personal drama but also the sort of situation the world is in today, we’ve got to come up with a new plan. If we don’t have the dream, we’re just not gonna change. Especially now, this kind of dream is an emergency.”
