Björk shares second taster of her upcoming album which is out next week

Björk has shared a new single, called ‘Blissing Me’, from her upcoming album Utopia. You can watch the Tim Walker-directed video above.

The track is the second to be shared from Björk’s forthcoming album following on from ‘The Gate’.

Utopia is set for release on November 24 and has been described by Björk as her "Tinder album". She elaborated on this further during a recent interview with The Guardian, saying: "I thought that was hilarious, but obviously I would never be able to be on Tinder." She added that writing and recording this album gave her the chance to be the "emotional explorer", a role which she had previously missed.

She also shared details of an all-female flute ensemble, made up of 12 members who feature on Utopia. She says that she rehearsed them again and again, "like 50 or 60 days", taking care of all arrangements and conducting – a response to the assumption from many that she takes a backseat on the studio process of her records.
