BJORK - Fossora | Beverly Phono MartNew/Sealed First Album Since 2017 Built Around Heavy Bottom-End and Inspired by Death of Mother, Youngest Son Leaving Home and Quarantine Björk delivers her long-awaited follow-up to 2017's Utopia with one of the most highly anticipated albums of 2022 entitled Fossora! Inspired by the death of her mother, her youngest son leaving home and the Covid pandemic quarantine, the enigmatic artist's tenth album overall is introduced by lead single "Atopos." "Each album always starts with a feeling that I try to shape into sound," Björk shares. "This time around the feeling was landing (after my last album 'Utopia' which was all island in the clouds element air and no bass) on the earth and digging my feet into the ground. It was also woven into how I experienced the "now". This time around 7 billion of us did it together nesting in our homes quarantining being long enough in one place that we shot down roots. My new album 'Fossora' is about that. It is a word I made up. It is the feminine of fossore (digger, delver, ditcher). So in short it means she who digs (into the ground). So sonically it is about bass, heavy bottom-end. We have 6 bass clarinets and punchy sub."
