Björk posts teaser for new single ‘Crystalline’ online – video

Icelandic singer previews her seventh album 'Biophalia'

Bjork has posted a 30 second video teaser from her new single ‘Crystalline’ and has indicated that it will be released formally at the end of the month. The teaser marks the first time that the singer has revealed any material from her forthcoming seventh studio album ‘Biophalia’.

The video shows the singer driving through her native Iceland while ‘Crystalline’ plays on her car stereo. You can watch the video by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

The singer posted the video on her official Facebook page yesterday (June 5) along with a message that reads: “Hi, Bjork here. I guess it’s time to let you know about my first song from ‘Biophilia’, ‘Crystalline’. It will appear towards end of June.”

Bjork has previously announced that she intends to release ‘Biophalia’ in the form of several iPad apps, with ‘Crystalline’ likely to be the first one when it comes out later this month.

The singer will play live in the UK next month as part of the Manchester International Festival, performing at the city’s Campfield Market Hall on June 30 and then on July 3, 7, 10, 13 and 16. The shows all start at 8.30pm (BST) with the exception of the July 3 and 10 gigs, which begin at 4.30pm.
