Björk has shared the cover of her new album.

'Fossora' is expected to arrive on September 30, according to the pre-orders that went live today. The record was announced in a recent interview the Icelandic artitst did with The Guardian. It will follow up 2017's 'Utopia'.

The album's first single, Atopos, is "coming soon" according to a social media post by Björk, but no specifics were shared. What she has shared, however, was a detailed note about the creation of the record and the artists that contributed to it:

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
side project , el guincho , hamrahlíð choir , soraya nayyar , clarinet sextet murmuri , siggi string quartet ensemble , emilie nicolas , serpentwithfeet, viibra and last but not least : sindri and dóa.

visuals were made by viðar logi , james merry , m/m , nick knight , andy huang , edda , isshehungry , tomi , sayaka , sunna , sara and heimir 

and my ever so loyal and magnificent team : derek , rosamary , catherine , chiara , hilma and móa.
