Icelandic goddess Björk and New York alt-gospel phenomenon serpentwithfeet is a collab that I have never thought about, and now I can’t imagine my life without it.
serpentwithfeet was easily the best new artist of 2016 (his debut project ‘blisters’ landed at #5 on my year-end list) and Björk is arguably one of the best artists of all time. Both make very experimental and intricately emotional music. So of course it makes sense that they should team up.
serpentwithfeet has hopped onto a new version of Björk’s ballad “Blissing Me” which serves as the second single from her most recent album ‘Utopia’.
Along with the duet remix, Björk has also released a harp version, because we all know how much Björk loves releasing versions of the same songs but with altered instrumentals, hence three different versions of previous album ‘Vulnicura’.
Now, I guess there’s nothing else to do but patiently await ‘Utopia Live’ or ‘Utopia Strings’. At least we have this gorgeous collab to savour in the meantime.
‘Utopia’ is available now.
