Video was made by filmmaker Jesse Kanda
Björk has revealed the innovative new video for her song ‘Mouth Mantra’.
The video was directed by regular Arca-collaborator Jesse Kanda and was filmed using a specially created camera which filmed inside Björk’s mouth as she sings the song.
“I am so extremely grateful to jesse to be up for going on this journey,” Björk wrote about the video. “It was brave of him to take it on and I feel spoiled having witnessed him grow… his dedication and devotion is overwhelming! I am especially grateful for those sassy dancefloor moments we managed to squeeze in there aswell : true magic !!”
Earlier this month (December) Björk released a limited-edition ‘Vulnicura’ live album.
The album was the third version of the Icelandic artist’s 2015 release following the original record and a forthcoming all-strings version was also released in December.
‘Vulnicura Live’ features every song from the album except ‘Atom Dance’ as well as non-‘Vulnicura’ tracks including ‘History of Touches’ and ‘Come To Me’.
Björk released ‘Vulnicura’ two months earlier than planned after it leaked in January. She later explained on Facebook soon after that it is a “heartbreak album” and stated that the LP was influenced by the breakdown of her relationship with artist Matthew Barney.
Touring the album has proved difficult for Björk. She cancelled a handful of festival dates due to a “scheduling conflict beyond [her] control” over the summer and added: “Singing this album has been intense and the internal clock of it different to the other ones. It has sort of had to behave in its own little way”.
