Björk Announces New Album 'Fossora'

08/19/2022

Björk is set to release her 10th studio album, Fossora, inspired by the grief she has experienced following the 2018 passing of her mother, Hildur Rúna Hauksdóttir, according to a new interview with The Guardian.

Fossora, the feminine version of the Latin word for “digger,” will feature a guest appearance from Serpentwithfeet, along with backing vocals from Björk’s son, Sindri, and daughter, Doa. Notably, the album, which will arrive as the follow-up to the artist’s 2017 album Utopia, was written during the COVID lockdown, during which Björk returned to her home country of Iceland. “I don’t think I’ve been that much home since I was 16,” she told the outlet. “Guilty to admit it, but I was eating chocolate pudding every day. I got really grounded and I really, really loved it.”

While speaking to The Guardian, Björk called the forthcoming record 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.” Specifically, two tracks on the album — “Sorrowful Soil” and “Ancestress” — are inspired by Hauksdóttir’s death.

Björk has not yet confirmed a release date for the album, though she did reveal that she is crafting a podcast series on her music, which is scheduled to debut alongside the LP this fall. Stay tuned for more updates.

Elsewhere in music, Pusha T performs “Brambleton” and “Dreamin of The Past” for Vevo Ctrl series.
