Bjork isn’t going to fool anyone. She reveled the cover art of her upcoming ninth studio album “Utopia” today because she knew Halloween was the perfect day to do it. Just take a look at the cover, above, for crying out loud. That cover was born to be revealed on Halloween. It’s freaky, scary, spooky, so out of the Stark Trek universe, and definitely represents the costume quirky Bjork would wear to a Halloween party. If we have a nightmare tonight, we’re so going to blame Bjork.
Bjork also revealed today that “Utopia” will be released on November 24. Pre-order for the 14-track album is available right now on iTunes and other platforms.
Read Bjork’s full statement below:
"i am so overwhelmingly humble while announcing my album utopia is coming out end of nov . i can´t wait for you to hear it . this is the cover made by the warm extraordinary talented Jesse Kanda and was assisted by me , James Merry and Hungry . thank you for telepathically getting me !! over the moon and jupiter gratitudes to magical Arca for making the music of this album with me : what a profound and nourishing trip this has been !!! thousandfold appreciation and headbowing . hope you like it , warmth , björk
If there are still people who buy CDs at record stores solely based on covers, then there’s no doubt Bjork’s “Utopia” is going to sell like hotcakes and debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200. This is an album cover art you can’t definitely miss in a record store.
