The song features on the Icelandic musician's new album 'Vulnicura'
Bjork has shared a new video for her track ‘Family’.
‘Family’ is lifted from the Icelandic musician’s recent surprise album ‘Vulnicura’, with its video being described as a ‘moving album cover’. It features a similar setting to the physical sleeve of ‘Vulnicura’, with the cover itself a still from the video.
Since the release of ‘Vulnicura’, Björk has discussed the breakdown of her relationship with artist Matthew Barney, which inspired the album. The artist said that the 2013 split was “the most painful thing” she had ever experienced. Björk and artist Matthew Barney were in a relationship for over a decade and have one daughter, Isadora. Writing about her new album on Facebook, Björk called ‘Vulnicura’ a “heartbreak album”.
Björk will play her first European gig since the release of new album ‘Vulnicura’ at Manchester International Festival later this year. The Icelandic singer will play at the Castlefield Arena on June 5 in the most high profile date in the annual festival’s pop and rock programme.
Björk was recently confirmed as one of the headliners for this year’s Wilderness Festival.
Over the weekend, Bjork claimed that misogyny is less of a problem in Iceland than it is in the rest of the world, praising her home country for electing a female president and prime minister recently.
