Björk is currently working on her next studio album, which will be released in 2015. That’s what it says on her Facebook page, anyway, in a post explaining why Björk would not be able to attend the London premiere of her new concert movie, Biophilia Live.
Björk’s last studio album was 2011’s Biophilia, an “interdisciplinary project” composed of museum installations, apps, live performances, and the aforementioned movie as well as the album itself. Björk produced Biophilia with help from British production duo 16bit, and for her new, as-yet-untitled effort has reportedly recruited Venezuelan producer Alejandro Ghersi, a.k.a. Arca. That’s about all we know for now, but the album will presumably include a Gamelan orchestra, a Mighty Mighty Bosstones cassette played backwards, a xylophone made of human vertebrae, and the sound of eggs being dropped from a great height.
