"Family" is a track from Vulnicura, which Björk calls "a complete heartbreak album." It reflects her break up with the artist and filmmaker Matthew Barney, with whom she had a daughter, Isadora, in 2002.
British musician Bobby Krlic, known by his stage name The Haxan Cloak, was one of two major collaborators for the album, along with Venezuelan producer Arca. He provided mixing as well as additional production for this track.
"The video for the track Family is described as a 'moving album cover' for Vulnicura. ... Huang uses his considerable multi-disciplinary talents to build the Björk universe from scratch, starting in CGI and then merging into live action. It's not just creation, but a kind of regeneration, as we begin to distinguish a figure, prone on a rock and split down the middle. This becomes Bjork, lying on a rock within a familiar Icelandic landscape, and repeats the visual motif from the other Vulnicura videos of a small exposed area of chest, symbolic of a damaged heart. It finishes with a symbolic CGI-enhanced repair job, indicating how the healing process continues - an uplifting message, that draws the viewer into the wonderful world created by Björk - and Andrew Thomas Huang."
