Vulnicura is the eighth studio album by Björk. The album was supposed to be released in March 2015 but due to a leak, Björk and her team decided to release it on January 20th, 2015. The album was written in 2013, the year Björk and her partner Matthew Barney broke-up and it documents the progressive deterioration of the relationship and the subsequent overcoming of her pain. These two phases are symbolised by the wound and the healing of the wound.
In Björk’s discography, Vulnicura most resembles Vespertine, another unyieldingly cerebral work about vulnerability and being turned by love to besotted viscera, and also an unmistakably female album. Vulnicura doubles down on these elements, from the choir arrangements to the yonic wound imagery of the cover, like Björk’s attempt at a grand unified photoshoot of female pain, to Vulnicura ’s echoes from the first track ("Moments of clarity are so rare-I better document this") of the long tradition of women artists thinking and rethinking their
The Vulnicura Tour was the eighth concert tour by Icelandic musician Björk. The tour centered on her critically acclaimed 2015 album Vulnicura which chronicled the singer's breakup with American contemporary artist Matthew Barney. The first half of each show featured the first six songs from the album, performed uninterrupted.
Seven tracks into Vulnicura comes a song called Atom Dance. It is the moment when the mood of Björk’s ninth solo album finally shifts a little, from black despair to something close to battered optimism. It’s a kind of avant-garde I Will Survive. That could be a description of Vulnicura itself. The album details her separation from artist Matthew Barney so unflinchingly that the first six songs are subtitled with a sort of date-stamp: Five Months Before, Two Months After.
Vulnicura may be the most personal, emotive and heartbreaking album which Björk has ever made. After the exploration of universe and nature with the previous project Biophilia, the icelandic deity focuses all of her forces around the feelings of her own heart, giving us an abstract journey through deep love, the desperate sorrow in losing it, and maybe, the hope of a new beginning. How will I sing us/Out of this sorrow?" For me, this album is tied with Homogenic for the best Björk album.
Rush-released after an internet leak, the new LP by Iceland’s greatest export is a break-up album like no other. By Brent DiCrescenzo Posted: Wednesday January 21 2015. Before making ‘Vulnicura’, Björk had two things removed from her: a throat polyp and a domestic partner, American artist Matthew Barney. Her ninth record, then, is the obligatory break-up album, one sung with extraordinarily renewed power.
Vulnicura is Björk's ninth studio album-assuming you include her 2000 Dancer in the Dark soundtrack Selmasongs (which you, of course, do) and not her 1977 self-titled child album (which you, of course, don't)-and features production from Arca and engineering from The Haxan Cloak, alongside Björk herself. The album is essentially broken into chapters: the bitter end, the breakup and the first steps forward. Its very name, Vulnicura, melds the Latin vulnero and cura: the wound and the cure-and captures everything between the two.
Björk said the album expresses her feelings before and after her breakup with American contemporary artist Matthew Barney and the healing process.
