French Academy Award-winning director Michel Gondry continues his rich music video history with Björk, with the Icelandic singer’s epic anthem, Declare Independence. Inspired by Björk’s electricifying live show, the video was filmed in Long Island City, NY, and features an unusual and elaborate set, not to mention a mid-air suspended bassist in Mark Bell. Björk, meanwhile, sings through a megaphone, transforming her voice into endless flowing colors. “Björk and I’s work together is based on trust and friendship,” Gondry, who’s now directed seven of her videos, explains.
