Björk - Fossora

She talked about it on Icelandic radio today.

During the making of the new album, Björk listened to beats that she feels move like a virus, that are still but moving at the same time. "Most of the songs I've done are 80-90 beats per minute and there is a rather boring reason for that, it is that when I walk I walk at that speed. But on this album it's chill in the first half of the song and calm but when there's one minute left the song turns into a club. Just for a minute" says Björk.

[She claims the music is] ideal for a COVID party, which were small while meeting restrictions were strict. "For people who are making clubs at home in their living room, restricted to their ‘Christmas bubble’" she says. "Like a man who was headbanging, then sat down again and had another glass of red wine, and everyone is home by ten o'clock, done with the dancing and everything."

For who's throwing a party at home in their living room, or who goes to a Christmas ball. It's like a man who got up and hit his head, then sat down again and drank another glass of red wine. Then everyone is home by ten, they stopped dancing and all that

I don’t mind waiting. I mean this year is almost over… however her mentioning Christmas does make you wonder. Maybe the first single in December?
Google translated some of the sentences in hilarious ways because the "Christmas ball" is actually a Christmas bubble, as in the selected group of people you were allowed to spend the holidays with because of COVID, and "the man who banged his head at the party" is simply headbanging, like in a metal concert or techno club. It's a joke about the songs being slow and quiet (VERY quiet, she says) just to explode hardcore before they end, like a close-friends-only house party at which you sit around for two hours, dance wildly for fifteen minutes and then go home. IT'S THE ULTIMATE TROLL MOVE, and we deserve it!

The museum she's been working with has already leaked the album is slated for a spring release. She's still due to perform Cornucopia shows this winter, so I don't think we'll hear new music before all Utopia endeavours are officially completed. But we're almost there! FORWARDNESS!

Scrihm. Thanks for the clarifications, I’ll edit the opening post.
