Björk released a new single, “Ovule”, along with an accompanying music video, from her upcoming album, Fossora. The video sees the singer reuniting with director Nick Knight, who directed her “Pagan Poetry” music video back in 2011.
The music video shows Björk rocking an eccentric red dress with jewels glued to her face, melting away in a pool of water and evolving into a new version of herself. The camera angles move back and forth from the singer to the futuristic pool transforming her, adding multiple layers to the video.
The singer took to social media to explain the meaning behind the new track, saying, “Ovule for me is my definition of love. It is a meditation about us as lovers walking around this world and I imagine 2 spheres or satellites following us around, one above us that represents ideal love, one below us representing the shadows of love, and we ourselves walk around in the third sphere of real love, where the everyday monday-morning meet-in-the-kitchen-love lives in.”
