Björk unveils ‘Fossora’ video

It’s the title track of her 2022 album.

Following the release of last year’s album ‘Fossora’, Björk is sharing the video for the record’s title track directed by herself, Viðar Logi, M/M (Paris) and Futuredeluxe. In our review of ‘Fossora’, we said, “At the heart of ‘Fossora’ - which, to be clear, is a full, beating one - sits the push-and-pull between old and new. It’s partially inspired by the death of Björk’s mother and the artist’s ensuing grief, and at the same time features her own children (son Sindri on ‘Ancestress’, daughter Ísadóra on the title track). Enveloping orchestral sounds come from strings, woodwind and brass, while crushing industrial samples or glitchy distorted sounds act as percussion. Vocals take from traditional choir structures, and become loops and samples, making full use of stereo sound.” Revisit the full review here, and watch the video for ‘Fossora’ below. Album Reviews 4 Stars Björk - Fossora Not an easy listen - as one might expect - but definitely a rich, rewarding one.
