In conversation with comedian Julia Davis, Björk has provided an update on her new album, the follow-up to 2015's 'Vulnicura'.
Speaking with Davis in a new interview for Another Magazine, Björk confirmed that she and Arca have completed three songs so far, saying that the last album was like hell, whereas they are doing paradise now. Björk said:
"I’m writing my next thing. I’m still allowing myself to be a submarine; I don’t totally have the view of it yet. It’s funny, each album is different for me. Like, what comes first? With this one, it’s maybe the melodies. This is very abstract, but the melodies have a similar kind of shape. But it’s really early on, and I don’t even know if I should say, but I have got three songs down with Alejandro [Ghersi, a.k.a. Arca], who I worked with on the last album [Vulnicura]. The last album, we sort of call it "hell" – it was like divorce! So we are doing paradise now. Utopia. We have done hell, we have earned some points."
In related news, Arca confirmed the title of his new album 'Reverie' by posting a teaser trailer on his Instagram page last week. Earlier this year, Björk shared a behind the scenes documentary of her single Black Lake in conjunction with the Museum of Modern Art as part of the retrospective that was held there.
