A soundtrack from a sci-fi film? So unusual, free flowing and futuristic art pop. But hey! so was her first big hit "Human Behavior" nearly 25 years ago in 1993. And as the lyrics in "Blissing Me" or "The Gate," this album carried her message on love and hope. From NOV. 14, 2017 NYTs interview:

In an interview at her apartment in Brooklyn, she said “Utopia” had long been her working title for the album. While making it, she read extensively about utopias: in academic studies and in stories and novels through the centuries, from ancient fables to the science fiction of Octavia E. Butler. “Utopia has gone from everything being monasteries, to feminist islands, to socialism, to ‘Peach Blossom Spring,’” she said, referring to a tale of an isolated, idyllic community that was written in the fifth century in China. (Note: Peach Blossom Spring, 桃花源记 or Tao Hua Yuan Ji, written in a time of political disunity in the Eastern Jin dynasty (317 – 420).)

(Far out man!)

Weird lyrics throughout. Here is "The Gate:"

[Verse 1]
My healed chest wound
Transformed into a gate
Where I receive love from
Where I give love from

[Chorus 1]
And I care for you, care for you
I care for you, care for you
Care for you, care for you
I care for you, care for you

[Verse 2]
Split into many parts
Splattered light beams into prisms
That will reunite

[Chorus 2]
If you care for me, care for me
If you care for me, care for me
Care for me, care for me
And then I'll care for you, care for you
I care for you, care for you
I care for you, care for you
Care for you, care for you

[Verse 3]
Didn't used to be so needy
Just more broken than normal
Proud self-sufficiency
My silhouette is oval
It is a gate

[Chorus 3]
I can care for you, care for you from
I can care for you, care for you
I care for you, care for you
I care for you, care for you
I care for you, care for you
You care for me, care for me
Care for you
