Björk announces new single 'The Gate'


Björk has announced that her new single ‘The Gate’ will be released in September.

The new track, which is delivered with a piece of spectacular artwork, will be available digitally from September 18 and on vinyl from September 22, Björk confirmed on Twitter.

‘The Gate’ will formed part of the surprise new album due for a release, an album the artist has herself called her “Tinder record”. 

“It’s like my Tinder album. It is definitely about that search — and about being in love,” she said in an interview with Dazed. “Spending time with a person you enjoy on every level is obviously utopia, you know? I mean, it’s real. It’s when the dream comes real.”

“’The Gate’ is essentially a love song, but I say “love” in a more transcendent way,” she said about the song. “Vulnicura was about a very personal loss, and i think this new album is about a love that’s even greater. it’s about rediscovering love — but in a spiritual way, for lack of a better word.”
