Björk just announced that her newest album is coming soon via handwritten message on instagram, and we’re all excited. The icelandic singer breaks more boundaries than anyone else in the industry, and a new album can only mean we’re going to be surprised, no matter how many hints we are given.
Her last album, Vulnicura, was mainly about her breakup with musician Matthew Barney, and this new album will be breaking away from that, and according to an interview with Dazed magazine, that this will be her “Tinder album”, and that she is searching for a new utopia. She explains further,
“Spending time with a person you enjoy on every level is obviously utopia. I mean, it’s real. It’s when the dream becomes real … everyone’s gonna be like, ‘Are you married?’ with this one. But … it’s too fragile still. I think, if I could, I’d just say this is my dating album. Let’s just leave it there.” She also says that this album will also be a political one. The recent political climate has definately has influenced her album, and has her looking for a new utopia. Like her 2015 album, it will be co-produced by Arca, stating their relationship is the strongest she’s ever had.
While tracklists and album names have yet to be released, Björk did supply us with the pre-order link, so fans can purchase the mystery album ahead of everyone else. The official release date is unknown, but Björk did confirm that it will be released in 2017.
