Fossora will arrive September 30 on One Little Independent Records.

 

Song titles:

 

1."Atopos" 

2."Ovule" 

3."Mycelia" 

4."Sorrowful Soil" 

5."Ancestress" 

6."Fagurt Er í Fjörðum" 

7."Victimhood" 

8."Allow" 

9."Fungal City" 

10."Trölla-Gabba" 

11."Freefall" 

12."Fossora" 

13."Her Mother's House

 

"Her new album is called Fossora, the feminine version of the Latin word for digger."

 

"On the cover, she is a glowing forest sprite, her fingertips fusing with the fantastic fungi under her hooves. Compared with the cloudy electronics of 2017’s Utopia, it is organic and spacious, earthbound rather than dreamy, and filled with warmth and breath"

 

"It is also a world of contrasts: the album’s two lodestones are bass clarinet and violent outbursts of gabber. There are moments of astonishing virtuosity and bewildering complexity and, like much of her recent music, a resistance to easy melody"

 

"Like all Björk albums, Fossora is a reaction to its predecessor. What she calls the “emergency” album and “the rescue album” popped out like airbags, with barely two years between them, despite the technical challenges Björk set herself"

 

"Fossora offers tender songs written for Björk’s mother, a poem by the 18th-century fisherwoman and drifter Látra-Björg, the buttery voice of Serpentwithfeet and backing vocals from Sindri, her son, and Doa."

 

Visual description of the album by björk:

“Let’s see what it’s like when you walk into this fantasy and, you know, have a lunch and farrrrt” – another gleefully rolled R – “and do normal things, like meet your friends.”

Despite hyping Fossora as an album for “people who are making clubs in their living room”, rumours of Björk’s rave album have been greatly exaggerated.

Mother looks gorgeous (and I really hope this one is stronger than the Utopia).
