«Each album always starts with a feeling that i try to shape into a sound.. This time around the feeling was landing on the Earth and digging my feet into the ground».


The album was partially inspired by the 2018 death of Björk's mother, Hildur Rúna Hauksdóttir, particularly the songs «Sorrowful Soil» and «Ancestress». All songs were written during and after the COVID-19 lockdowns, during which Björk returned to her home country, not having been that much since she was 16.

«How I experience the “now” is also woven into how it is written. This time around 7 billion of us did it together - nesting in our homes quarantining. Our mutual “now” is being so long in one place that we shot deep roots down. 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).»


Björk «fossora» will out September 30th, 2022 via One Little Independent Records. The first single «atopos» (featuring Kasimyn) was released September 6th, 2022 and the second single «ovule» was released September 14th, along with a music video directed by Nick Knight, who had also worked on Björk's «Pagan Poetry» music video in 2001.
