Gotta love BjÃ¶rk. Her latest single “Earth Intruders” from her upcoming album Volta is playful, beat-heavy, and well, very BjÃ¶rk. The video for the song is laden with environmental symbolism and clearly shows the singer’s concern for what’s happening around us. Take a look at the video below:
According to BjÃ¶rk, the inspiration for the song came during a dream. From MTV.com,
“The song “Earth Intruders,” in particular, was sculpted soon after BjÃ¶rk awoke from a dream she had during a cross-Atlantic flight to New York. In the dream, the singer said a “tsunami of millions and millions of poverty-stricken people” swelled high above the airplane she was a passenger on. Eventually, the wave overtook the plane, hit land and razed the White House into oblivion. ‘It’s a quite chaotic song,’ she said of Volta’s first single. ‘Lyrically, it’s a collection of all of these images’ burned into her memory, from her trip to Indonesia as well as her vivid, in-flight reverie.”
