Bjork is set to co-present a programme on London's Rinse FM independent radio station.

According to a tweet from Tri Angle Records, the Icelandic musician will host a broadcast next Thursday (February 19) with the label's boss Robin Carolan. It's also been revealed that there'll be an exclusive mix from electronic producer and Tri Angle artist, Holy Other.




Björk recently rush-released her new album 'Vulnicura' after the record leaked online. The Icelandic singer took to Facebook to tell fans about the making of the LP, calling it a "heartbreak album".

She wrote: "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 three 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."

It was also recently revealed that Björk will be the subject of a new exhibition at New York's Museum of Modern Art.

Simply titled Björk, the retrospective dedicated to her career will include Black Lake, "an immersive 10-minute music and film experience" by director Andrew Thomas Huang which runs alongside the song of the same name from her new album 'Vulnicura'. A statement from the museum says the exhibition will use "sound, film, visuals, instruments, objects, costumes, and performance" to detail Björk's career.

Meanwhile, Björk will perform two shows at New York's Carnegie Hall and a further four at the City Center venue between March 7 and April 4 this year.

In addition to the new album and exhibition, the singer will also release a career retrospective book in March titled Björk: Archives. The book, which features contributions from directors Chris Cunningham and Spike Jonze, will chart the singer's career through a mixture of poetry, academic analysis, philosophical texts and photographs.

Björk will play:

New York Carnegie Hall (March 3, 14)
New York City Center (March 25, 28, April 1, 4)
