After it leaked over the weekend, Bjork has decided to release the highly-anticipated Vulnicura early. Head to iTunes to buy it now. It appears to be UK-only for now, but she writes on Facebook that the album “will be rolling out worldwide over the next 24 hours.”
As previously announced, the album was produced by Bjork with assistance from Arca and Haxan Cloak. Antony and the Johnsons vocalist Antony Hegarty also appears on one track, ‘Atom Dance’.
Bjork wrote on facebook about this album:
----------->"i am so grateful you are still interested in my work !!
i appreciate every little bit !!!
i wanted to tell you 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
and then a magic thing happened to me : as i lost one thing something else entered . alejandro contacted me late summer 2013 and was interested in working with me . it was perfect timing . to make beats to the songs would have taken me 3 years ( like on vespertine ) but this enchanted arca would visit me repeatedly and only few months later we had a whole album !!! it is one of the most enjoyable collaboration i have had !
i then went ahead and wrote string and choir arrangements and recorded them in iceland
towards the end of the album i started looking around for a mixing engineer and was introduced by a mutual friend of ours , robin carolan to the haxan cloak . he mixed the album and also made a beat for one half of "family" . together with chris elms the engineer we kinda formed a band during the mixing process and this is the album we made !!!
i do hope you enjoy it
i would like to thank this overqualified little team ( where roles often blurred )
. i also would like to thank robin , his generous approvals gave me more courage to complete this as is .
and my group of songswapping / dj friends : the right tune can truly cure : ta for those sonic ointments
but most of all i would like to thank my team : james merry , derek birkett and emma birkett . rosemary and elisa . this album could not have been done without you <-----------

"Black Lake" is a new sound and video installation commissioned by The Museum of Modern Art on the occasion of the exhibition Björk (March 8–June 7, 2015; Member Previews, March 4–7). The song "Black Lake" appears on Björk’s new album "Vulnicura" (2015).
For information on the exhibition and admission policies, visit MoMA.org/bjork.
"Black Lake" is directed by Andrew Thomas Huang, with creative direction by Björk, Andrew Thomas Huang, and James Merry.
Bjork's next music video is made for virtual reality
Let's say for a moment that the experimental Oculus VR movies that came out of Sundance didn't do anything for you, but that Icelandic songwriters totally float your boat. You're in luck because Björk's upcoming video for "Stonemilker" will be available for Oculus Rift, according to an interview with Fast Company. She says that the platform is "almost more intimate than real life" and finds it exciting in general, citing its "crazy panoramic" abilities. Don't go thinking this means she'll release an entire album for it, similar to what she did with 2011's Biophilia being released as an app, though:
"I only did that album because I felt like I had content that made sense, that could relate to the technology. It can't just be working with the gadget for the sake of the gadget. But also it's about budgets. You can do apps cheaply. Apps was kind of punk, actually. It was like starting a punk band again. Filming for Oculus Rift is not." One other way you can see her work in virtual reality is at the Museum of Modern Art's retrospective of her career, which opens March 8th in New York. What's more, Björk says she's keeping her new album off of Spotify because, well, in her words streaming music "seems insane." Her reasoning is that, like Taylor Swift's, it's about respect for music, not particularly the financial aspect. Should you want a deeper look inside her brain, be sure to hit the source link below.
