Vulnicura, the eighth studio album from Icelandic artist Björk, has been rolling out on iTunes worldwide over the last 24 hours on One Little Indian Records. CD and vinyl versions will come out in March as originally planned.
The release which has come two month early after it leaked over the weekend was written, produced and recorded in collaboration with Venezuelan producer Arca and British musician The Haxan Cloak.
Of the album’s nine tracks, six are written by Björk with two co-written with Arca and one co-written with Spaces. Six songs are produced by Björk and Arca, one by Björk, Arca and The Haxan Cloak and two by Björk.
All string arrangements are by Björk. The album was mixed by The Haxan Cloak, except two songs mixed by The Haxan Cloak and Chris Elms, and mastered by Mandy Parnell. Vulnicura is Björk’s first release since the 2011 album and multimedia project Biophilia.
To celebrate the release of Vulnicura, Björk announces intimate shows this spring at Carnegie Hall on March 7 and 14 and at City Center March 25 and 28 and April 1 and 4.
The series of shows culminates with a performance at the Governors Ball music festival in New York this June. Presale tickets will be available to fans Monday, January 19 at 11:00a.m. ET. Tickets will go on sale to the public Friday, January 23 at 11:00a.m ET.
