Meanwhile, Bjork is set to release a career restrospective book in March 2015, featuring contributions from Chris Cunningham and Spike Jonze. 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.

Björk’s concert film Biophilia Live was released on DVD and Blu-ray last month (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’.
