Watch: Björk's "Crystalline" Official Music Video Directed By Michel Gondry

Whoa. So in case her intense new interactive digital app and recent live performances weren't enough of an indication, Björk is very intent on letting the world know that her upcoming album Biophilia (due out September 27 on Nonesuch / One Little Indian) is a full-on multisensory experience. And since our initial visual association with leadoff single "Crystalline" of Björk bumping it in her car, Pitchfork reports that she's upped the ante with a new official video for the track, directed by her old friend and master of trippiness Michel Gondry.

The Björk / Michel Gondry combination has resulted in some of my favorite music videos of all time, and the retro Space-Invaders-meets-Björk-in-a-Christmas-disco-ball stylings of "Crystalline" demonstrates that the pair haven't lost a beat in their unique artistic collaboration. Check it out above - between this and the recent reunion of the Beastie Boys and Spike Jonze, it's awesome to see some of the best musicians in the game getting nostalgic with their videos.
