Published Dec 07, 2010Earlier this year, British fashion designer Alexander McQueen committed suicide at age 40. Icelandic pop weirdo Björk was friends with McQueen, which explains why she stepped up to record a song for the short tribute film To Lee, With Love, Nick, made by director/photographer Nick Knight.
You can see the film over at SHOWstudio.com [via Pitchfork]. Rather than paying tribute with archival footage or personal messages, this clip opts for a sparking swirl of warped figures and abstract images. Björk's song is the perfect accompaniment to the dramatic video, bringing together chilling blasts of horns and stark, dramatic vocals. The title of the song is unknown.
