Björk has done it again! The Icelandic artist just unveiled her latest video for the track “fossora” and it’s a visual masterpiece. Directed by Björk herself, along with Viðar Logi, M/M (Paris), and Futuredeluxe, the video takes fans on a journey through an underground mushroom world where love, family, and roots are explored.
The video features Björk performing alongside clarinet sextet Murmuri and Kasimyn of Gabbar Modus Operandi against a backdrop of glistening spores that multiply, grow, and pulsate as the track reaches its peak. It’s an extension of the world she created for her Grammy-nominated album “fossora,” which was named one of The New York Times’ and Pitchfork’s Albums of the Year.
The word “fossora” itself was created by Björk and is named after the feminine version of the Latin word for “digger.” It’s a reflection on roots, grounding, and family, all explored within the context of an underground mushroom world.
But let’s talk about Björk’s career for a moment. She’s a true multidisciplinary artist who continues to innovate across music, art, fashion, and technology. From writing and producing an expansive music catalog to collaborating with scientists, app developers, writers, inventors, musicians, and instrument makers, Björk is constantly pushing the boundaries of what it means to be a musician.
Her influence can be seen in countless artists across genres and generations, and her impact on the music industry is immeasurable. She’s a true icon and we can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
