'Arisen' is the latest track from Björk's recent album to get the video treatment

Björk has shared a video for 'Arisen', taken from her recent album Utopia. You can watch the video, via WeTransfer, here.

The video is directed by Jesse Kanda, the long-time collaborator of Arca who co-produced 'Arisen' alongside Björk. The clip features a moving sculpture created by Kanda, described as "a pearlescent white amalgam of amniotic sack, mating slugs, phallus, and blood red mouths."

It was "initially sculpted [by] himself in digital form and brought to life in silicone" and is describes as depicting the cycle of death, mating and birth as one.

Björk plays All Points East at Victoria Park on May 27 and Cornwall's The Eden Project on June 20 next year.
