Watch: Trailer for Björk's 'Black Lake' Showcases Celestial Vocals and Evocative Imagery

After decades of award-winning musical and film performances, legendary musician-actress Björk is set to receive a retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).

The career of Björk, a Grammy- and Oscar-nominee who was named among the 100 greatest singers of all time by Rolling Stone, will be examined through a chronological demonstration of her innovative musical compositions and groundbreaking music videos. Together with frequent collaborator Michel Gondry (director of “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”), her work has blurred the line between music and film. Her 1999 single “All Is Full of Love” was the first ever to be released on DVD.

Below is a trailer for her upcoming single “Black Lake,” which will appear in Björk’s upcoming album and has also been commissioned by MoMA as a new multimedia installation for the exhibition. It perfectly represents the profound influence and creative idiosyncrasy of her work, as her haunting vocals are matched by an unnerving zoom-in and a moody atmosphere.

The retrospective runs from March 8 to June 7. Check out the trailer for “Black Lake” below.
