WATCH: Björk “Lionsong” Music Video

Icelandic musician Björk has released her new music video for “Lionsong” from the album Vulnicura. Björk was originally the lead singer of the band The Sugarcubes in 1986 before starting her solo career in 1993.

Her struggles, triumphs, and wavering perceptions all lend themselves to beautiful storytelling and fresh inspiration in her debut full-length, I’d Like To Remain a Mystery.
