Bjork has announced that she’ll be heading to Cornwall next summer for a special show at the Eden Project.
The singer, who released new album ‘Utopia’ today, will play the Eden Sessions show on June 20.
Tickets for the show will go on sale from 4.30PM on November 30, priced at £50.00. You can buy them here.
Describing the gig, Eden Project marketing director Rita Broe said: “For many years it’s been a big ambition of ours to welcome Björk to the Eden Sessions and now we’re thrilled to confirm that this hugely-talented artist will at last appear on our stage. We’re confident that it will be one of the most memorable Sessions we’ve ever hosted.”
Along with the Eden Sessions gig, Bjork will also appear at the newly announced All Points East Festival in London’s Victoria Park.
Meanwhile, Bjork recently opened up on recording Utopia, and revealed how she had sampled an album which features the sound of Venezuelan birds.
“I used a vinyl album of Venezuelan music I had, [Hekura–Yanomamo Shamanism From Southern Venezuela], that was recorded in the ’70s—Venezuelan birds. The birds there sound completely different. They sound like R2-D2, or techno”, she revealed.
“There’s one beautiful sound that ended up in the beginning of ‘The Gate’, a recording of these birds that Venezuelans believe are the ghosts of fetuses. If they have stillborns or young children that die, they think they go into the jungle and make these sounds.”
