Björk has spoken publicly for the first time about her new album ‘Vulnicura’’s leak and the decision to release the LP immediately in advance of a March schedule.

Talking to Zane Lowe on his Radio 1 show, she discussed the ins and outs of releasing the album online as an immediate response.

“There is no way to say how you should react,” she said. “In my situation, I had one thing going for me - the album was mastered and ready. I don’t know how I would have reacted if it was four months before. And I think also, because of the nature of the album for me emotionally, it’s the sort of subject matter where I really wanted to just get it out of the way, over and done with. It was an immediate album and I did it so quickly and it was like ‘Oh, it’s leaked, let’s just put it out.’”

Elaborating on the album’s subject matter, she said: “I work a lot on my own. I actually like it, I don’t document it at all. It’s quite a secretive place for me. When Arca came, I’d done all the songs already, the strings and structure. A lot of it was done. When he came into it, it was more like a celebration, because he’s total magic.”

‘Vulnicura’ is out now on One Little Indian - read DIY’s initial review here and listen to the Zane interview below.
