Björk has revealed that she has started work on her next album, the follow-up to last year’s ‘Vulnicura’.
In an interview with comedian Julia Davis for AnOther magazine, the Icelandic musician said that she had already completed three songs.
“I’m writing my next thing,” she said. “I’m still allowing myself to be a submarine; I don’t totally have the view of it yet. It’s funny, each album is different for me. Like, what comes first? With this one it’s maybe the melodies. This is very abstract, but the melodies have a similar kind of shape.”
Björk also mentioned that she has been working together with Venezuelan-born producer Arca on her new material. The pair previously collaborated on her last album.
“It’s really early on,” she continued, “and I don’t even know if I should say, but I have got three songs down with Alejandro [Ghersi, AKA Arca], who I worked with on the last album [Vulnicura]. The last album, we sort of call it ‘hell’—it was like divorce! So we are doing paradise now. Utopia. We have done hell, we have earned some points.”
Last week, Robin Carolan, founder of Tri Angle Records, expressed his irritation at being asked whether Björk produces her own music in a post on Instagram.
“She is the boss. 100 percent. She writes, produces, composes, sings,” he wrote.
