Having already presented us with the harrowing love song, the gate. Utopia once again features co-production from Arca, while the artwork, designed by Jesse Kanda maintains Björk’s tradition of featuring a portrait of herself on each album cover.
“The last album, we sort of call it ‘hell’ — it was like divorce. So we are doing paradise now. Utopia, What a profound and nourishing trip this has been.”
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.
