Björk’s has finally shared her new song ‘The Gate’.
The new music comes as the first since the release of 2015’s Vulnicura. The Icelandic icon has offered little in the sense of detailed information around the thought process of the new record, except that it will be released in November and has been described as her “Tinder record” with the inclusion of songs about love.
“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.”
“Maybe that’s why it became a utopian theme — if we’re gonna survive not only my personal drama but also the sort of situation the world is in today, we’ve got to come up with a new plan,” she said. “If we don’t have the dream, we’re just not gonna change. Especially now, this kind of dream is an emergency.”
