Björk is back with "Atopos", the first outing from her Utopia follow-up fossora.

After sharing the tracklist, artwork and release date for fossora last week, Björk has unveiled the lead single from the record, "Atopos", which was premiered on BBC Radio 6 Music earlier this morning (6 September).

The new song was co-written with Gabber Modus Operandi's Kasimyn, and the accompanying video is directed by Viðar Logi.

On Twitter yesterday (5 September), Björk wrote, "The video to the first single from my new album called "atopos" is coming tomorrow, it is a good intro .... kinda like fossora's passport. Sonically a heavy bottom-ended bass world. We have 6 bass clarinets, punchy sub drilling, nesting and digging us into the ground."

fossora will follow Björk's 2017 album Utopia, and will feature 13 songs in total. It will include contributions from Serpentwithfeet, backing vocals from her son Sindri and daughter Doa, songs written for Björk's mum, and a poem Látra-Björg, an 18th-century fisherwoman and outcast.

As well as sharing details of her fossora album last week, Björk released the first three episodes of her Sonic Symbolism podcast.

"Atopos" is out now. Her fossora album arrives on 30 September via One Little Independent Records, and is available to pre-order now.
