Bjork is to release a career restrospective book in March next year, featuring contributions from Chris Cunningham and Spike Jonze.

As Consequence Of Sound reports, Björk: Archives will chart the Icelandic singer's career through a mixture of poetry, academic analysis, philosophical texts and photographs when it is released on March 30.

The book is officially endorsed by Björk and features contributions from her collaborators, including Chris Cunningham and Spike Jonze, plus Icelandic poet Sjón and musicology professor Nicola Dibben. MoMA curator Klaus Beisenbach will provide the introduction.

Björk: Archives will also look at her fashion choices and feature portraits by Nan Goldin, Juergen Teller, Inez & Vinoodh and Araki.

Meanwhile, Bjork's film Biophilia Live was released on DVD and Blu-ray earlier this week (November 24).

Biophilia Live was filmed during the final night of Björk's tour at London's Alexandra Palace in September 2013. It was directed by Berberian Sound Studio director Peter Strickland with Nick Fenton, editor of Arctic Monkeys' At The Apollo DVD. The release comes with extra footage which was filmed at Japan's Miraikan Museum during Bjork's residency at the venue.

Kanye West producer Arca recently announced that he is to co-produce Björk's new album, which follows 2011's 'Biophilia'.
