Bjork, the popular experimental singer-songwriter, has never been afraid to embrace new technology. Last year, she released an interactive 360-degree music video (embedded above), and this year she’s going a step further with a slate of VR music videos available exclusively through a worldwide tour.

“Bjork Digital” currently features four VR experiences based on songs from her most recent album Vulnicura. One video is set on a cloudy black beach in Iceland, another takes place in a cave, and a third actually puts you inside the singer’s mouth. Bjork has five more videos is in the works, according to Vanity Fair, and they should be ready for release later this summer.

The only way to experience Bjork Digital at the moment is to attend one of the events, which are taking place in major cities including Houston, London, Paris and Tokyo this summer. The tour features 80 Gear VR headsets so hundreds of people can experience it each day. It’s also been ported to the HTC Vive with Room Scale support so you can walk around inside the music videos.

The videos will eventually be available to download for the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Gear VR and Android/iOS for use with Google Cardboard. Once that happens you’ll be able to experience Bjork Digital at home, but for now you’ll have to attend the tour to see it for yourself.
