The Icelandic singer has unveiled the first video to be taken from the new album, Vulnicura.

The album was issued ahead of schedule on iTunes in January, but will receive a physical release on Monday, 16 March.

Video directors Inez and Vinoodh told Noisey: "Björk’s character for Lionsong had to be smooth like a spider waiting in her web and seductive like a Balinese dancer cast in bronze. She is seen as if under a microscope, baring her heart while luring us inside the bloody galaxy of her own wound.”

Take a look, it's bonkers.
