Björk’s ninth album will be entitled Vulnicura. A handwritten note detailing the title, tracklist and month of release was posted on her social media, revealing that the follow-up to 2011’s Biophilia will be available in March.

The album’s song titles are typically speckled with science and nature-references such as Lionsong, Atom Dance and Quicksand. Read her full post below:


In the years since 2011’s Biophilia, fans have followed Björk’s gig movements hoping to try and find out more about the direction of her new album: gigs by Mykki Blanco, and PC Music acts GFOTY and Danny L Harle have sparked collaboration rumours, but Vulnicura’s credits affirm otherwise. As previously reported, she co-produced much of the album with the Venezuelan producer Arca, AKA Alejandro Ghersi, who is known for his alien creations for FKA Twigs and Kanye West. The album’s other credits include The Haxan Cloak, the Yorkshire-born musician who mainly specialises in instrumental, experimental electronic music and is reportedly working on Health’s forthcoming release. Both collaborators point towards a dark, digitally-wired creation. Björk provided all string arrangements for the album.

In 2014, Björk appeared on The Powers That B, Death Grips’ final album. Last year also saw Biophilia – the first-ever album app upon its release in 2011- inducted into the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
