“Stonemilker” is a song recorded by Icelandic singer/songwriter Björk for her ninth studio album, Vulnicura, in 2015. It was written and produced by Björk with beats by Venezuelan musician Arca. “Stonemilker” is Vulnicura’s opening track, and the first of a six-part narrative that details the devastating end of Björk’s relationship to American contemporary artist Matthew Barney. Björk wrote the lyrics on the same Icelandic beach where the innovative 360-degree music video was later shot.
“Stonemilker” was released as a promotional single in some territories in 2015 and received very limited airplay in a shorted radio edit. Unlike all of her previous studio albums, Vulnicura saw no commercially released singles. Despite this fact, several versions of the song have been released across a variety of different media.
