[N]ever predictable, and always visionary, Bjork has been enthralling us with her innovative music videos since the early 1990s. An immersive trip to the cosmos, ‘The Gate’, might just be our favourite to date.
Produced in collaboration with Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele and motion graphics artist Andrew Thomas Huang, ‘The Gate’ is a glimpse into Bjork’s vision of a utopian world. Kaleidoscopic colours, iridescent clothing from Gucci and otherworldly beauty direction (by Hunger’s very own Andrew Gallimore) come together to hallucinogenic effect.
A transcendent love song, ‘The Gate’ is the first single from the Icelandic icon’s forthcoming album ‘Utopia’ – produced by FKA Twigs collaborator Arca, and set to drop later this year.
Watch the full video for ‘The Gate’ below, currently premiering on Nowness.
Nowness hosted an event sponsored by Don Julio Tequila on Saturday 16th September to premiere the video.
