Björk unveils via Noisey the incredible new video for ‘Lionsong’, the stunning track from her new album ‘Vulnicura’ (out now digitally via One Little Indian). The video was directed by longtime Björk collaborators and legendary creative duo Inez & Vinoodh.
Inez & Vinoodh explain: “Björk’s character for ‘Lionsong’ had to be smooth like a spider waiting in her web and seductive like a Balinese dancer cast in bronze. She is seen as if under a microscope, baring her heart while luring us inside the bloody galaxy of her own wound.”
The video was created in collaboration between Björk, Inez & Vinoodh and visual effects production house Framestore…“Inez & Vinoodh had some fantastic ideas about what they wanted and supplied some beautiful initial reference, that had a painterly style not dissimilar to traditional religious iconography, of characters covered in starlight,” says Framestore’s Matt Pascuzzi, “That, along with their existing album artwork, gave us some pretty beautiful reference to work from and I am immensely proud of our New York compositing and 3D teams who, in every sense, did this job for the art.”
