Björk: Vulnicura

Fans were surprised with a two-month early official release of Björk’s new album Vulnicura (her first since 2011’s Biophilia) after it was leaked online. The experimental Icelandic artist describes her ninth studio album as a “complete heartbreak album that documents the “emotional chronology” of her own personal breakup from beginning to end: “the wound and a healing of a wound.” Björk has also announced a series of shows in NYC (including Carnegie Hall and Governor’s Ball) to coincide with her MoMA retrospective exhibition, which opens in March 2015. Pick it up from iTunes.
