Look, we all know that reading about an announcement of a single is perhaps not as important as being able to hear the damn thing, but this is Björk we're talking about. If we're not above posting a video of her talking about her TV, we're certainly not above this.

The track is called 'The Gate' and it's taken from her forthcoming new album, which as of yet has no release date or name.

Here's what she had to say about the song: “The gate is essentially a love song, but i say ‘love’ in a more transcendent way. vulnicura was about a very personal loss, and i think this new album is about a love that’s even greater. it’s about rediscovering love – but in a spiritual way, for lack of a better word.”

You can pick up 'The Gate' via One Little Indian on September 22nd.
