Earlier this year, Björk teased the idea of a brand new album coming out sometime in the coming months. At the time, it was described as being something along the lines of a rave and would deal directly with the isolation felt by the Covid-19 lockdown.
Thanks to a new interview with The Guardian, we’re getting some more updates about the new LP today. In it, Björk has revealed the album’s title, Fossora, along with a tentative release date for the fall of 2022.“Fossora”, as translated from the artist’s native Icelandic language, means “waterfalls”. It also translates closely to a Latin word for “digging”. Björk mentions in the interview that the album will be less in line with the initial rave idea and will instead have two major elements to the music: bass clarinets and the hardcore electronic dance genre known as Gabber.
