Bjork's album leaks early, and what does she do? Liken it to rape? Heavens, no! Always having been on the cutting edge, this Diva not only pushed the release date forward months- to FRICKIN TOMORROW- but she issued a statement on Facebook that actually thanked her fans for the interest in her work.
dear websitefolks , fans , tweeters and my music supporters on all the sorts of www :
vulnicura will be rolling out worldwide over the next 24 hours !!
i am so grateful you are still interested in my work !!
i appreciate every little bit !!!
She goes on to explain a little bit about the album- titled Vulnicura- which is great for someone like me who knew nothing about it. I didn't even know she'd been through a break-up, so am now super looking forward to hearing her channel this pain through her art.
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
and whom else to lure into singing with me my worship-of-love-song "atom dance " than my goddess of love : antony ?
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 hope so too! This LP is going to prove that 2011's Biophilia was a mere blip in mine and Bjork's musical relationship. To think anything else is almost too much to bear...
