Björk has announced a new single and accompanying visual film The Gate, which will be screened in a free public event at The Store Studios, London.
The film, presented by Nowness, has been created by the artist and her frequent visual collaborator Andrew Thomas Huang who has previously directed music videos for Mutual Core, Black Lake and Stonemilker, to name just a few parts of their creative partnership. The film also involves collaborations with embroidery artist James Merry and Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s creative director.
The screenings will take place between 10am – 6pm on 16 and 17 September. The single will be released on vinyl via Björk’s record label One Little Indian on 22 September. On her website the artist states: “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.”
