The Icelandic singer-songwriter’s mesmerizing new video, made in collaboration with Gucci’s Alessandro Michele and artist Andrew Thomas Huang premiering over on Nowness.
“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.” – Björk, Dazed magazine
"For the first release from her forthcoming new album, co-produced by Arca, Björk has teamed up with a super-troupe of contributors to create a hallucinogenic new video. Artist Andrew Thomas Huang lends his tech-savvy hand to envision a kaleidoscopic world inhabited by the singer-songwriter, who is clad in an iridescent otherworldly garment designed by Gucci’s Alessandro Michele."

Emma Higgins, director: "This video was never meant to be made, however I'd worked with the band before and loved this particular track off the album so when the opportunity came to piggyback this shoot onto another one we were able to make it happen on our next to nothing buget. Sex, control and babes on babes, the incredible crew helped me realise the concept exactly as I'd imagined it, in particular Oliver Millar our DOP who is quoted below. "
This is the second video I've done with my pals in Bystarlight. We shot this in a single day last summer. The band had an idea for an over the top Michael Bay summer video which I thought would be fun. POP and colour.
