Björk’s New Album Hits iTunes A Month Earlier Than Planned

Bjork

Talk about damage control. Upon the unexpected circulation of Björk‘s new album, Vulnicura, this past weekend, the Icelandic singer/songwriter has taken it upon herself to shift the release date a month earlier than expected. The highly anticipated nine-track offering was supposedly scheduled in conjunction with a feature exhibition of her career at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC this coming March, but was made available worldwide on January 20.

“Overall, the advice was to do a pre-sale on iTunes with the instant gratification of two or three tracks,” Birkett, the founder of One Little Indian Record, tells Billboard. “Bjork ideally wanted to get the whole record out, and to cut a very long story short, she made a mostly artistic decision that she wanted to get it all out. She felt very passionately about it.”

Vulnicura is now available for purchase on iTunes, while physical copies of the record will still be rolling out in March.
