Björk is back! This time, the Icelandic musician has announced a new album that is bound to sound pretty ecological. Fossora, the follow-up to 2017's Utopia, will arrive in the fall, The Guardian reports.
The record's title, Fossora, is based on the word “digger” in Latin. The songs were written during and after the COVID-19 lockdown, and the LP was partially inspired by Björk’s late mother, environmental activist Hildur Rúna Hauksdóttir, who died in 2018.
Collaborations and contributions on the album include serpentwithfeet, Björk’s son, Sindri, and daughter, Ísadóra, and Indonesian dance duo Gabber Modus Operandi. According to The Guardian write-up, Björk describes the album as a “mushroom album,” adding, “It’s like digging a hole in the ground. This time around, I’m living with moles and really grounding myself.”
Björk is also planning a podcast series about her discography later this year. Like her new album, the audio series will also arrive in the fall.
