Björk has officially announced her new album ‘Fossora’ and shared its artwork.

The follow-up to 2017’s ‘Utopia’ was created during the pandemic and is set to be released in the autumn, according to a new interview in The Guardian.

The singer has now revealed that the album’s first single, titled ‘Atopos’, will be “coming soon” though no firm release date has been revealed.

So we were like: ‘Come on,’ and getting her to fight and … and it was like she had an inner clock in her and she was just ready to go.”
