Björk has shared a new visual treatment for “Sorrowful Soil,” the fourth track from Fossora. In the Viðar Logi-directed clip, which doubles as a lyric video, the Icelandic experimental pop icon delivers the odd, acappella cut in stark relief to an active volcano. Through an ovoid porthole in a see of black, Logi’s camera watches her serenade the scorched mountain rock and oozing lava with extremely normal lines like “In a woman’s lifetime / She gets four hundred eggs / But only two or three nests.”
Fossora, Björk’s 10th solo studio LP (excluding the self-titled record she released in 1977 at age 12), arrived September 30. We certified its lead single, “Atopos,” a Song You Need.
