Icelandic musician’s ‘Vulnicura’ follow-up is coming ‘soon’

Björk has revealed that her new record was partly inspired by dating, describing it as her “Tinder album”.

The Icelandic musician last put out a record in January 2015 with ‘Vulnicura’. The album saw her collaborate with Arca and Haxan Cloak, while it detailed her break-up from artist Matthew Barney.

Speaking to Dazed in a recent interview surrounding her upcoming new album, Björk said: “This is like my Tinder album,” continuing: “It’s about that search (for utopia) – and about being in love. Spending time with a person you enjoy on every level is obviously utopia, you know? I mean, it’s real. It’s when the dream becomes real.”

She added: “I set myself up with the last album being a heartbreak album, so 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.”

Earlier this year, one of Björk’s close collaborators revealed that she had “already written quite a bit” of her new album and described it as sounding “really future-facing”.

Artist and filmmaker Andrew Thomas Huang is responsible for producing some of Bjork’s most striking recent music videos – including ‘Blake Lake’ and ‘Mutual Core’ – and told The Fader he was also working with the musician on a video for the new record.

Asked about the sound of the new album, he replied: “I think it’s a bit too early for me to say at the moment, but, you know, Björk’s already written quite a bit of it. We just want to evolve what we did in ‘Vulnicura,’ which was so personal and introspective.
