Icelandic pop goddess Björk has released what is, perhaps, her most melodic song in years with “Blissing Me,” the second single from her forthcoming album Utopia. A thematic descendant of the artist's 1995 electronic hymn “Headphones,” the track is composed of a series of verses but no traditional hook, as Björk sings of trading MP3s with a fellow “music nerd” over a spare arrangement of harp and digital programming. The music and vocals grow more intricate as she becomes increasingly filled with doubt: “My woe and longing are too visceral/Did I just fall in love with love?”
Shot in a single take by directors Tim Walker and Emma Dalzell, the music video for “Blissing Me” finds Björk dancing—swirling, really—blissfully against a white backdrop. The singer's big ruffled top and bright yellow platform shoes are complemented by elaborate makeup and hair that bring to mind a Snapchat filter come to life.
Utopia is out next week.
