Following the release of the lead single “Atopos,” Björk shares another one from the forthcoming LP Fossora. “Ovule” is accompanied by a mesmerizing music video, shot by the “Pagan Poetry” director Nick Knight. The full album will be out on September 30, 2022 via One Little Independent Records.
Produced and arranged by Björk, “Ovule” encompasses elements of jazz and reggaeton. This unlikely blend, alongside the poetic lyrics, results in an eccentric avant-garde love song that’s exactly the Icelandic singer-songwriter’s style.
With extravagant and outlandish make-up and costumes, Björk adds her unique touch to the the colors red and black that overwhelm the clip and complement the futuristic lyrics: “I have placed a glass egg/ above us floating/ An oval ovule in a dark blood/ red void/ Carries our digital selves/ embracing and kissing.”
The EDM pioneer announced the second single 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.”
“Ovule” carries another one of Björk’s sublime messages, “The hostility a broken heart endures/ The velocity of the injury is/ returnеd to the world/ With the same grin showing teeth.”
