The record, which is her 10th studio album, came out last Friday (November 24). In a four-star review, NME described it as being “where art, real life and deep experimentation intersects, and it’s utterly compelling.”
Speaking to Beats 1’s Matt Wilkinson, she said a live edition of ‘Utopia’ would be made available next spring. “There were a lot of flute things I didn’t completely explore,” the musician explained. “Like more soloists and mysterious kind of flute playing, and I’m gonna be rehearsing with the flute players here in Iceland.
I just want it to happen organically in early spring,” she added. “We have some additional flute songs and some different kind of angles.”
Björk has previously released live versions of her albums before, including two for her last record ‘Vulnicura’.
“We wrote a couple of songs together,” Björk said. “Sometimes when you do things and you don’t plan them it’s magic. And I really think what we made was magic. But I think because it wasn’t part of the whole ‘Homogenic’ thing and it wasn’t part of what Wu-Tang were doing at the time, it was better as an idea, if that makes any sense?”
