Björk: The Gate The Icelandic singer-songwriter’s mesmerizing new video, made in collaboration with Gucci’s Alessandro Michele and artist Andrew Thomas Huang September 18, 2017. 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. Director 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. Here, Huang talks about the project: The Gate picks up where 2015's Vulnicura left off. It is the first glimpse into Björk's utopia
Björk is the only studio album by Icelandic singer Björk Guðmundsdóttir as a child singer, released on 18 December 1977 by Fálkinn. In 1976, Björk appeared on Icelandic radio singing "I Love to Love" through the music school she attended, which led her to a record deal and the release, with the help of stepfather Sævar, of her first solo album in 1977.
One of Björk’s most lowkey and slowburning singles, aptly named The Gate opens the door to the world of Utopia, transitioning from her previous album Vulnicura. Choral melodies, woodwinds, and gibberish intro The Gate, making way for minimal, ambient verses before building the tension back up with a flurry of synths, giving the track an eery atmosphere. What have the artists said about the song? Björk: 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.
Beyond the Gate is an album released by Moi dix Mois on March 1, 2006. The Other Side in Blood (SE)" – 1:00. Eternally Beyond" – 4:25. Deus Ex Machina" – 3:50. The Other Side of the Door" – 3:03. Eternally Beyond" (Instrumental). Deus Ex Machina" (Instrumental). Vain" (Instrumental).
In the interview, Björk explains that The Gate is essentially a love song, but I say ‘love’ in a more transcendent way. It’s about rediscovering love – but in a spiritual way, for lack of a better word. The currently untitled album was recorded in 2016 and co-produced with Arca, with Texas producer Rabit producing one track on the album
One of Björk's most underrated tracks. The Gate is a spectatular opening to Bjork's new album entitled "Utopia". While seemingly underwhelming on the first listen, the song itself is made up of lyrics that affirm Bjork's love for her partner, transcending the typical love song with woodwinds and Arca's instrumentals, introducing us to her anticipated album due in November.

No: The Gate is perhaps the Björkiest thing that’s ever Björked: synths flutter, discordant harmonies weave in and out, and Björk sings about splattered light beams into prisms while twirling her Rs. It’s like overhearing two nymphs having a flute-off in a wood full of horny ghosts. Moaning Lisa Smile was one of the best singles of 2014 – not an opinion, a fact, so be quiet – and then the My Love Is Cool album came out, and it was fine, and now this is out, and it’s fine as well. It sounds like Slowdive. It does the loud-quiet thing.
Björk wrote and recorded her album during the global political upheaval in 2016, something that led her to an exploration of utopia. Maybe that’s why it became a utopian theme," she said. 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, she says. If we don’t have the dream, we’re just not gonna change. Especially now, this kind of dream is an emergency. The new album is co-produced with Arca while Texas-based producer Rabit worked on one song.
