Björk announces her tenth studio album Fossora –

each album always starts with a feeling

that i try to shape into sound

this time around

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

i would like to especially thank bergur þórisson and heba kadry
