Bjork is debuting her new “Stonemilker” video in New York and London this weekend. Instead of on YouTube, fans will watch the video on virtual reality headsets.

On March 21, the first 50 people in London who purchased Bjork’s new album, Vulnicura, at Rough Trade East received a wristband for entry today, March 22, to see the 3-D video directed by Andrew Thomas Huang. New Yorkers have a few more opportunities to see it in person: They can either be among the first 50 people to buy the album at Rough Trade Brooklyn, March 22 to 28, or see it at the Museum of Modern Art’s PS1.

Bjork and Huang took just a few hours to film the “Stonemilker” video in November with a 360-degree camera. Bjork appears with 30 other musicians on the same beach in Reykjavik, Iceland, where she wrote the stunning Vulnicura opener.

“It immediately rang true for me as that location has a beautiful 360 panoramic view which matches the cyclical fugue-like movement in the song,” Bjork says, adding, “So as you watch this in the virtual reality headset it will be as if you are on that beach and with the 30 players sitting tightly in a circle around you.”
