New Music: Björk - Vulnicura LP

New Music: Björk - Vulnicura LP

Björk has surprise dropped her new album today, two months earlier than planned.

Well. Talk about a treat for Hump Day.

Two months ahead of its original release date (in a note on Facebook last week, Icelandic musician Björk told us she'd be releasing the album in March), Björk has released her album Vulnicura on iTunes today, rolling it out over 24 hours. It's her first album in four years, following 2011's Biophilia. The early than announced digital release is most likely in response to the fact that it leaked over the weekend (although, unlike Madonna, she didn't go so far as to call the leak "artistic rape"). 

Vulnicura notably features co-production with our favourite New York Venuzualen Arca, producer for Twigs and Yeezus. British experimental producer The Haxan Cloak also chipped in on one track, and handled most of the mixing, save for two mixed with Chris Elms. Antony Hegarty, of Antony and the Johnsons, features on vocals on one track.

Björk posted (again... she is really into heartfelt Facebook posts hey) that the album was "a complete heartbreak album … hopefully the songs could be a help, a crutch to others and prove how biological this process is: the wound and the healing of the wound. Psychologically and physically. It has a stubborn clock attached to it."

What IS still happening in March however, is a big ol' Bjork exhibtion at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The Björk exhibition will feature a visual narrative of the singer's career, including her contributions to performance art, recordings, film, costumes, instruments and visuals, as well as a 3-D film.
