In a new interview with English comedian Julia Davis for AnOther Magazine, Björk has revealed that she’s already working on the follow-up to last year’s Vulnicura, which was co-produced by Arca. Speaking about the album, she said that she’s been working on new material with Arca for the next album: “It’s really early on, and I don’t even know if I should say, but I have got three songs down with Alejandro [Arca], who I worked with on the last album.”
She started explaining the forthcoming record, saying, “I’m writing my next thing. I’m still allowing myself to be a submarine; I don’t totally have the view of it yet. It’s funny, each album is different for me. Like, what comes first? With this one it’s maybe the melodies. This is very abstract, but the melodies have a similar kind of shape.”
Further describing the as of yet untitled album, she compared it to Vulnicura, saying, “The last album, we sort of call it ‘hell’–it was like divorce! So we are doing paradise now. Utopia. We have done hell, we have earned some points.” Björk doesn’t have a tentative date for the album, but Arca is expected to release a new album, Reverie, sometime later this year for Hyperdub.
