    This is really lovely and it seems to recall a lot of moments in her discography, while still sounding fresh (to me it sounds the most like "Gratitude"). The artwork is gorgeous too:

    It reminds me of Vashti Bunyan. I like it a lot.

    There's a cute little video of Bjork dancing in circles to the song on Facebook, but I can't seem to embed it here.

    I am so on the fence. The instrumentation is gorgeous and reminiscent of Vespertine, which is A+ in my book. On the other hand, it's basically the same melody repeating over and over for 5 minutes. I get bored halfway through. She's been doing this 'repetitive melody' thing for a while now, like in Black Lake; sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

    The video of Blissing me is so lame. SO lame.
    When he woke up, the dinosaur was still there.

    This is really pretty. Lovely to hear the harp in her music again. (I think that's harp eh?)

    all of my mouth was kissing him
    now into the air i am missing him
    is this excess texting a blessing
    or just two music nerds obsessing

    he reminds me of the love in me
    i’m celebrating on a vibrancy
    sending each other mp3s
    falling in love to a song

    this handsommest of wickermen
    he asked if i could wait for him
    now how many lightyears this interim
    while falling in love with his songs

    his hands are good in protecting me
    touching and caressing me
    but would it be trespassing
    wanting him to be blissing me
    robbing him of his youth

    cliffhanger like suspension
    my longing has formed its own skeleton
    bridging the gap between singletons
    sending each other these songs

    the interior of these melodies
    is perhaps where we are meant to be
    our physical union a fantasy
    i just fell in love with

    so i reserve my intimacies
    i bundle them up in packages
    my rawward longing far too visceral
    did i just fall in love with love?

    This is apparently about Robin Carolan from Tri Angle Records. They've been seen out and about as a couple over the past two years.

    ETA:

    my bad, but my first thought was : is she biting his arm ?

    as for Blissing Me. It's nice and reminds me of Vespertine...but I lost my attention halfway until the last part picked up

    I haven't made time to watch the video yet, but I will say after one listen I already like Blissing Me WAY more than The Gate.
