Björk has joined forces with Rosalía to share the environmentally charged new track ‘Oral’. Check it out below.Shared today (November 21), the track marks the first time that the iconic singer has joined forces with Rosalía, and sees the two musicians work together to shed light on the cruelty and negative consequences of open-pen salmon farming in Björk’s native Iceland.Originally, ‘Oral’ was written by Björk over two decades ago, when she developed it between 1997’s ‘Homogenic’ and 2001’s ‘Vespertine’.

It was later put on ice by the singer and soon forgotten about after she felt it wasn’t the right fit for either LP.According to a press release, the artist rediscovered the track after being reminded of its name whilst on tour in Australia earlier this year.Incidentally, this occurred at the same time that a report was released about the devastating impact of poorly regulated salmon farming operations on Iceland’s native ecosystems.

From there, she enlisted Rosalía to help bring the song to life and in turn raise awareness of the issue.“Is that the right thing to do?/ Oh, I just don’t know./ I just don’t know,” they both sing in the powerful and emotive chorus.The track also comes alongside a triumphant music video, created by visual artist Carlota Guerrero.
