Björk - Utopia mp3 album

Utopia is the tenth studio album by Björk. It is a colloborative effort between Björk and long-time collaborator, Arca. The album was released on November 24, 2017. All tracks except "Features Creatures" and "Paradisia" have Arca.

Utopia is the ninth studio album by Icelandic singer-musician Björk. It was primarily produced by Björk and Venezuelan electronic record producer Arca, and released on 24 November 2017 through One Little Indian Records. The album received critical acclaim from music critics for its production, songwriting and Björk’s vocals, and later received a nomination for Best Alternative Music Album at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, becoming Björk’s eighth nomination in the category.

Produced by Björk & Arca. Bird species never seen or heard before The first flute carved from the first fauna. Utopia It’s not elsewhere Let's purify. You assigned me to protect our lantern To be intentional about the light. Utopia It isn't elsewhere It’s here. The idea of an endangered biosphere in her Utopia also incorporates the existing problem of climate change, which Björk repeatedly mentions and warns of. It can also be noted that this is the first titular track on the main line of Björk albums. Is there a album version of the song? Yes! What birds are featured on the song?

The Utopia Tour was the ninth concert tour by Icelandic musician Björk, centering on her 2017 studio album, Utopia. The tour kicked off with 2 special stage rehearsals on 9 and 12 April 2018 at the Háskólabío Theater in Iceland before touring Europe. Utopia's live presentation later evolved into Cornucopia, a theatrical stage concert with enhanced visual and sound presentations which opened at The Shed in New York City on 6 May 2019.

Utopia is Björk’s flute album much the way the darkly intimate Vespertine leaned on the celeste or Medúlla was composed mostly of human voices, or Volta had brass and Biophilia its choirs. But Utopia is, more accurately, an album of breath and wind

Björk began working on Utopia almost immediately after releasing Vulnicura in 2015. The first news of the album came from Björk herself during her pre-taped acceptance speech for International Female Solo Artist at the 2016 Brit Awards, held on 24 Feburary 2016. She called London her 2nd musical home and stated that her reason for not attending was that she was busy recording her new album. In March 2016, when Björk spoke with AnOther Magazine, where she revealed, I’m writing my next thing. In the magazine, Björk explains that her new album is an exploration of utopia, with its writing process coinciding with some of the biggest political upheavals in recent history.

Trailed as a return to happier times after the heartbreaking and sometimes difficult to listen Vulnicura, and described by the artist herself as her Tinder album, Utopia promised to be a much needed step into lighter terrain for Björk and for her fans.
