Björk Announces Studio Album Number Ten ‘Fossora’, Teases Lead Single ‘Atopos’

Björk announces her latest album Fossora will be arriving in just over three weeks on September 30th. The LP, her tenth studio album, is inspired by the earth and the ground, unlike previous album Utopia, which drew influence from the air.

The Icelandic avant garde pop sensation shared that the album was inspired by the feeling of ‘landing’. She expands: “each album always starts with a feeling that i try to shape into sound the feeling was landing
( after my last album utopia which was all island in the clouds element air and no bass ) on the earth and digging my feet into the ground it was also woven into how i experienced the “now” this time around 7 billion of us did it together nesting in our homes quarantining being long enough in one place that we shot down roots my new album “fossora” is about that it is a word i made up it is the feminine of fossore ( digger, delver, ditcher ) so in short it means “she who digs” ( into the ground ) so sonically it is about bass , heavy bottom-end , we have 6 bass clarinets and punchy sub

The artist releases the album in a variety of formats – particularly numerous vinyl forms, including burgundy, lime green, turquoise and clear versions.
