“The Gate” is the first cut off what Björk is describing as her “Tinder album.”
Björk is back with an introspective slice of future-pop from her upcoming tenth full-length album. “The Gate” is the first taste of what to expect from the new record, which Björk has recently described cryptically as her “Tinder album.” It deals with broad themes of love, utopia and longing: “It’s about that search (for utopia)—and about being in love. Spending time with a person you enjoy on every level is obviously utopia, you know? I mean, it’s real. It’s when the dream becomes real.”
The album is expected to be released in November, and follows on from Björk’s brilliant 2015 effort Vulnicura. You can hear “The Gate” in full below.
