Utopia is the ninth studio album from the iconic artist Björk, out November 24th via One Little Indian Records.
Of the album Björk explains that: “Maybe that’s why it became a utopian theme – 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.”
The first track from the album was released on September 15th entitled “The Gate”, with a spell-binding video directed by Andrew Thomas Huang. Watch it below:
