Here is how Wikipedia describes this song:

Bachelorette is a song recorded by Icelandic singer Björk for her third studio album Homogenic (1997).[a]

Released as its second single on 1 December 1997, the song was originally written for a film by Bernardo Bertolucci, but the project was withdrawn.

The lyrics for “Bachelorette” were written by Sjón, a friend and collaborator of the singer.

The song’s accompanying music video was noted for its surrealistic art direction, leading to a win at the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards.

Music And Lyrics

Björk wrote about the writing process of “Bachelorette” on her website:

Because I wanted the lyrics to be so epic, I got my friend Sjón – who’s a poet in Iceland – to write them.

We sat together at the kitchen table and drank a lot of red wine and I told him the whole story for hours and days, and he wrote the words from that story.[3]

“Bachelorette” is emotionally charged and theatrical, following Homogenic‘s theme of “beats and strings”, but also includes instruments such as timbalestimpaniAlp horn and accordion, among others, which helped make the song stronger and more dramatic.

Björk described the song’s lyrical theme as “Isobel goes to the city”.

Part of this song was allegedly used in alternate opening credits for Ghost In The Shell: S.A.C. 2nd Gig, and I never knew about this until I got to see it on YouTube:
