After a seven year wait The Knife have returned with “Full of Fire,” their first piece of new music since the band’s breakthrough record Silent Shout. The new single, to be featured on the Swedish duo’s epically long new LP Shaking the Habitual has come paired with a short film music video that Karin Dreijer Andersson and Olof Dreijer describe as being “focused on images of queer bodies and sexualities.”

According to the film’s director Marit Östberg, “The film ‘Full of Fire’ started to grow as an embryo in the song´s lines ‘Who looks after my story’. Who takes care of our stories when the big history, written by straight rich white men, erase the complexity of human´s lives, desires and conditions? The film ‘Full of Fire’ consists of a network of fates, fears, cravings, longings, losses, and promises. Fates that at first sight seem isolated from each other, but if we pay attention, we can see that everything essentially moves into each other. Our lives are intertwined and our eyes on each other, our sounds and smells, mean something. Our actions create reality, we create each other. We are never faceless, not even in the most grey anonymous streets of the city. We will never stop being responsible, being extensions, of one another. We will never stop longing for each other, and for something else.”
