‘Vulnicura’ was rush-released earlier this year.

Since the release of the record, Björk has discussed the breakdown of her relationship with artist Matthew Barney, which inspired the album. The artist said that the 2013 split was “the most painful thing” she had ever experienced. Björk and artist Matthew Barney were in a relationship for over a decade and have one daughter, Isadora. Writing about her new album on Facebook, Björk called ‘Vulnicura’ a “heartbreak album”.

Björk will play her first European gig since the release of new album ‘Vulnicura’ at Manchester International Festival later this year. The Icelandic singer will play at the Castlefield Arena on June 5 in the most high profile date in the annual festival’s pop and rock programme.

Björk was recently confirmed as one of the headliners for this year’s Wilderness Festival.
