Bjork's new record is a 'Tin­der al­bum'

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Bjork says her new record is her "Tin­der al­bum". The Ice­landic singer-song­writer hasn't re­leased a record since 'Vul­ni­cura' in 2015 - but has now given her fans an in­sight into what they can ex­pect from her new al­bum. She ex­plained: "This is like my Tin­der al­bum. It's about that search [for utopia] - and about be­ing in love. "Spend­ing time with a per­son you en­joy on ev­ery level is ob­vi­ously utopia, you know? I mean, it's real. It's when the dream be­comes real." Bjork's last al­bum de­tailed her break-up from artist Matthew Bar­ney, but the 51-year-old star has claimed her new record fo­cuses more on her dat­ing life. She told Dazed mag­a­zine: "I set my­self up with the last al­bum be­ing a heart­break al­bum, so ev­ery­one's gonna be like, 'Are you mar­ried?' with this one. But ... it's too frag­ile still. "I think, if I could, I'd just say this is my dat­ing al­bum. Let's just leave it there." Mean­while, Bjork pre­vi­ously be­moaned the lack of women writ­ing mu­sic about se­ri­ous is­sues. The singer said fe­male artists face a pres­sure to fo­cus their mu­sic on spe­cific is­sues. Writ­ing on Face­book in De­cem­ber, she said: "Women in mu­sic are al­lowed to be singer song­writ­ers singing about their boyfriends. If they change the sub­ject mat­ter to atoms, gal­ax­ies, ac­tivism, nerdy math beat edit­ing or any­thing else than be­ing per­form­ers singing about their loved ones they get crit­i­cized: jour­nal­ists feel there is just some­thing miss­ing ... as if our only lingo is emo ... "If we don't cut our chest open and bleed about the men and chil­dren in our lives we are cheat­ing our au­di­ence. (sic)"
