Björk cancels appearance at premiere of her film to work on new album

Singer was due to attend screening of 'Biophilia Live' at London Film Festival

Bjork has cancelled her appearance at the premiere of her new film Biophilia Live in order to work on her new album.

Organisers of the London Film Festival had confirmed that Bjork would appear at its premiere at The Odeon West End tonight (October 9).

But a statement on Bjork’s Facebook page said: “We are so sorry, but since Bjork is already working on her next album (out in 2015!) she cannot come to the ‘Biophilia Live’ premiere at the London Film Festival this week. Many sorries, and be well.”

Biophilia Live was filmed during the final night of Bjork’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.

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