I couldn’t be more happy when hearing Björks new album ‘Vulnicura’. Unfortunately for her she had to launch it earlier (it was planned for March) because it leaked on the internet. Now it’s available on iTunes. Album cover is shot by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. Mind-blowing!
Björk has posted “the tale of making of this album”.
“ i guess i found in my lap one year into writing it a complete heartbreak album . kinda surprised how thoroughly i had documented this in pretty much accurate emotional chronology …. like 3 songs before a break up and three after . so the anthropologist in me sneaked in and i decided to share them as such . first i was worried it would be too self indulgent but then i felt it might make it even more universal . and 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 . there is a way out.”
