Bjork pulled a delightful fast-one on us by releasing her anticipated new record Vulnicura yesterday, January 20th. The release comes two months before its scheduled release date, due to a premature leak of the record. The hard release is still scheduled for March, but you can now download Vulnicura for $10.99 on iTunes. Bjork’s newest endeavor features contributions from Antony Hegarty, Arca and The Haxan Cloak. On initial skim, the record sounds spectacular in a way that only Bjork could execute. Check out Vulnicura here, and keep an eye out for Bjork’s upcoming shows in New York.
