Legendary Icelandic singer, multi-instrumentalist, and electronic music visionary Bjork has been the latest artist who has been forced to rush release material due to it leaking months before it was scheduled to.

The singer’s Ninth album Vulnicura is the follow up to 2011’s Biophilia and is available to purchase on iTunes now. The physical versions of the album including vinyl and CD are both scheduled to come out in March still.

Taking about the project the singer said “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.

Discussing her work with the collaborative producers on her new album including Arca and The Haxan Cloak she said “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!!!”

The Vulnicura track listing is as follows:

Stonemilker
Lionsong
History Of Touches
Black Lake
Family
