One Little Indian (2017) UK, US
Bjork returns on One Little Indian Records with her ninth studio effort Utopia, co-produced by Venezuelan DJ Arca. It follows-up her 2015 breakup record Vulnicura and celebrates her re-emergance on the other side of heartache.
"The last album, we sort of call it ‘hell' – it was like divorce. So we are doing paradise now. Utopia," the enigmatic artist explains. "Vulnicura was about a very personal loss, and I think this new album is about a love that's even greater. It's about rediscovering love – but in a spiritual way..."
Transcendent lead single "The Gate" serves as a fitting introduction to a record about Bjork's romantic renaissance. The eye-catching cover art was designed by artist Jesse Kanda with creative direction from Björk and her longtime collaborator James Merry.
