Björk creates The Gate video with longtime collaborators Andrew Thomas Huang and Gucci designer Alessandro Michele. The video is a prismatic portal with hallucinogenic visuals that perfectly embody what you imagine from the Icelandic songstress. The video is the perfect doorway into her new era of Utopia.

“The Gate is essentially a love song, but I say ‘love’ in a more transcendent way. Vulnicura was about a very personal loss, and I think this new album is about a love that’s even greater. It’s about rediscovering love—but in a spiritual way, for lack of a better word.”

Andrew Thomas Huang describes the video: The doorway lies within the wound from Vulnicura, which now appears transformed into a prismatic portal channeled between the chests of two lovers. Not lovers in the quotidian romantic sense, but in a broader cosmological way.
