Björk plays first ‘Vulnicura’ show in New York – watch

The Icelandic artist played her new album at New York's Carnegie Hall on Saturday (March 7)

Björk played her first show since the release of her new album ‘Vulnicura’ on Saturday (March 7) in New York.

The artist played a matinee show at Carnegie Hall, backed by a 15-piece string section, as well as animated projections for each song by artist Stephen Malinowski. The show featured an intermission as well as a two song encore, consisting of ‘Harm Of Will’ and ‘Wanderlust’.

The set opened with ‘Stonemilker’, with Bjork wearing a white dress and headpiece similar to the one in the cover art for her new LP and joined by producer Arca. Watch crowd-shot footage of the performance below, as well as a montage of the set.
