Tutto pronto per il nuovo album della 51enne islandese che sarà fuori a novembre. Per la signora Guðmundsdóttir si tratta del nono album a due anni da ‘Vulnicura’. “It’s like my Tinder album. It is definitely about that search — 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 comes real”. Quindi viene lanciato il primo singolo ‘The Gate’ fuori il 18 settembre (digitale) e il 22 (vinile) via One Little Indian. “The gate is essentially a love song, but i say ‘love’ in a more transcendent way. Vulnicura was about a very personal loss, and i think this new album is about a love that’s even greater. it’s about rediscovering love – but in a spiritual way, for lack of a better word”.
Il primo singolo è ‘The Gate‘. Il disco si chiama ‘Utopia’, prodotto da Arca, e sarà fuori il 24 novembre. Rivelato anche l’artwork opera di Jesse Kanda. “i am so overwhelmingly humble while announcing my album utopia is coming out end of nov . i can´t wait for you to hear it . this is the cover made by the warm extraordinary talented @truekanda and was assisted by me , @james.t.merry and @isshehungry . thank you for telepathically getting me !! over the moon and jupiter gratitudes to magical @arca1000000 for making the music of this album with me : what a profound and nourishing trip this has been !!! thousandfold appreciation and headbowing . hope you like it , warmth , björk”.
E Arca risponde: BJÖRK ‘UTOPIA’ @bjork spiritwashing album cover by sisterbrother @truekanda björk: the soft merge that yielded this album has been one of the most oxygenating experiences i’ve had in my lifetime. can i be a little sentimental ? i cherish every single moment in the 2+ year journey of this album with you and james and jesse. the licking raindrops out of the salty air in the tropics & listening for birds, swimming in green rivers, the fires crackling through snow … the dark grey storm and the luminous rainbow that flooded the air after. it floods me still each day and with colors i didn’t know. this album truly carries a piece of utopia for me—one that is already smilingly real. unquantifiable, hundreds of thousands of sparkles effortlessly magicked by the regal @james.t.merry i love u
UPDATE – Il nuovo singolo è ‘Blissing Me‘.
