Cover of Debut

From Debut and 40 other releases

“I think I wrote it in my living room in Iceland and sang it into my dictaphone. Later, by accident, we were going through sounds and I found this broken bottle sound. It wasn’t intentional but it sounded great.”

‘Venus As A Boy’ was written by Björk and produced by her long-time collaborator Nellee Hooper. When it became time to turn it into a single & music video, she approached Sophie Muller, a british video director that has done music videos for several big names such as Eurythmics, No Doubt and Blur since the early 80’s.
