New Björk Album, Feat. Production By Arca, Confirmed For 2015



It’s been three years now since Björk released the skittering, science-inspired album Biophilia, and lately we’ve been hearing rumblings that she’s working on its follow-up. A few weeks ago, there were reports that she was working with Arca, the Venezuelan-born and New York-based producer. Arca, who specializes in dessicated deconstructions of apocalyptic dance music and who worked with Kanye West on Yeezus, issued a clarifying statement on Twitter: “rather than “sole producing,”@bjork and I are coproducing music together! just a quick correction to phrasing !! *curtsie*” And now Björk’s camp has effectively confirmed that she’s got a new album coming out next year, posting on her Facebook that she’s skipping the Biophilia Live premiere at this week’s London Film Festival so that she can work on the album, which is due next year. Björk tends to do amazing work when she’s paired up with a bleeding-edge electronic producer, and Arca is absolutely that, so this is a good time to start getting excited.

So excited for this. She's one of those artists where I'm always really curious to hear what she comes up with next.

Edit: I do hope the new album flows a little better than Biophilia, which I do like, but it's my least favourite of hers I have to say. Not counting the largely covers album she made as a child, as I haven't bothered listening to that in full, and the Drawing Restraint 9 soundtrack album as I haven't really listened to that in full very much either, although I love Gratitude, Storm and Ambergris March on that one. I do remember it had a few kind of irritating tracks.

Part of the excitement for me is how it will work visually as well as the music, she's such an ICON.

I pretty much ignored the last album (I did hear it, it wasn't bad but didn't exactly pique my interest). However I always check out what she releases and from the description this sounds interesting!

Homogenic is simply one of the greatest masterpieces ever created, just perfection.

So excited for this. From what I've read, the new album will contain strings, all arranged by Björk. Happy to hear that actually, it's been some time since she's worked with strings, I don't think the previous three had any strings at all and she works well with strings I find.

She has a very distinctive sound that's a bit hard to get into. You could try her Greatest Hits. My favourite album is Medulla.

People are saying that in Latin, "vulnus" means "wound, injury" and "cura" stands for "cure, treatment".

So this is on iTunes now - two months early! A response to the leak, I guess.

It doesn't seem to be in the iTunes store just yet (at least not the Irish one) - the article says it should be there in the next 24 hours.

Really excited though. I have an idea for a Youtube video regarding listening to the first track for the first time. I hope the video can be seen as art, not boring pointless self-indulgence.
