Björk - Utopia
Label One Little Indian
CD | LP | You are lucky to be alive at the same time as Björk. For 25 years, she has consistently set the gold standard for where pop culture and true avant garde converge. She is our generation's Bowie, and even that possibly does her work a disservice.
One Little Indian says:
‘Utopia’ is the ninth studio album from the iconic artist Björk, out November 24th via One Little Indian Records. The album's artwork was created in collaboration of M/M, Jesse Kanda and James Merry and reflects the records sonic direction; optimism, lightness, utopia.
Of the album she explained to Dazed this Summer that, ““Maybe that’s why it became a utopian theme – if we’re gonna survive not only my personal drama but also the sort of situation the world is in today, we’ve got to come up with a new plan, If we don’t have the dream, we’re just not gonna change. Especially now, this kind of dream is an emergency.”
Björk wrote, produced and recorded the album between Reykjavik and New York, working closely with Arca and writing for, conducting and recruiting a thirteen piece flute orchestra which will be on the road with her next year.
