The title track from her new album gets the visual treatment
Björk has shared a stunning new video for ‘Utopia’, the title track from the Scandi sensation’s latest album.
The new video for its title-track paints another alternate world, populated by bizarre flora and fauna, and a flute-toting Bjork. In a recent interview with herself, Björk explained her flute obsession, and her lifelong relationship with the instrument.

In an interview released last month, Björk revealed that she is already planning an alternate version of ‘Utopia’.
Speaking to Beats 1’s Matt Wilkinson, she said a live edition of ‘Utopia’ would be made available next spring. “There were a lot of flute things I didn’t completely explore,” the musician explained. “Like more soloists and mysterious kind of flute playing, and I’m gonna be rehearsing with the flute players here in Iceland.
“I just want it to happen organically in early spring,” she added. “We have some additional flute songs and some different kind of angles.” Björk has previously released live versions of her albums, including two for her last record ‘Vulnicura’.
She also revealed that she had previously collaborated with Wu-Tang Clan. Speaking to FACT, Björk said that she initially wanted RZA to contribute beats to her 1997 album ‘Homogenic’ and later linked up with the hip-hop group in New York.
“We wrote a couple of songs together,” Björk said. “Sometimes when you do things and you don’t plan them it’s magic. And I really think what we made was magic. But I think because it wasn’t part of the whole ‘Homogenic’ thing and it wasn’t part of what Wu-Tang were doing at the time, it was better as an idea, if that makes any sense?”
