Björk has shared the lead single from her forthcoming album, Fossora. Directed by Viðar Logi, the “Atopos” video takes place in a fungal underworld, where a masked Björk, a bass clarinet sextet, and Gabber Modus Operandi’s DJ Kasimyn gear up for a rave showdown. Watch it happen below.
Björk wrote on Twitter yesterday that the track is “kinda like Fossora’s passport.” The album, out September 30, was partly inspired by the pandemic experience and lockdown raves. Its title is a word that Björk made up—the feminine of “fossore,” which means “digger, delver, ditcher,” as she put it in press materials.
