Icelandic singer-songwriter Björk has left fans waiting for a new album since 2015's Vulnicura, but it looks like 2017 may be the year for a new Björk album. We'll also unpack why the unreleased album is on eBay, find out who Gork is, and take a look at the new music video for "All is Full of Love."
Björk's New Album
Fans have been left reeling due to Björk's recent announcement of her new album. In a hand-written letter posted on Instagram Björk stated, 'I am excited to share with you that my new album is coming out very soon.' She signed off, 'Warmthness, Björk.' This is a sign-off that is not new to the universe of all-things-Björk, (she normally signs 'Warmth, Björk') however, this variation is slightly even more Björky than ever, because the word doesn't even exist.
Now we enter the world of Gork. This is the new forest fire that's catching in the minds of all who know and love Bjork. Why? Refer to the image above, and take a look at the way her name is written. In the barely legible note, meant to announce a new album and nothing more (besides sharing some warmthness), she has, by mistake, given herself a brand new moniker. Oh yes, the world not only has itself a Björk, but now, it's got a Gork too!
eBay's Listing of Björk's Album
eBay has a listing for an untitled Björk album, the CD is unopened, and the release date is September 22nd, 2017. You can see the full details below. What this hints at, besides the obvious leak, is that the new album the Icelandic artist announced as 'coming soon,' may be set for a September 22nd release date.
"All is Full of Love"
The new album announcement was followed by the release of an official music video for 1997's "All is Full of Love," from the album Homogenic. In it, two robots embrace while machines caress the robot-equivalent of their genitalia – imagine the brainstorming session that gave life to that idea. Anyways, you can watch "All is Full of Life" below, and in fairness, we've made it pretty clear what you're getting yourself into.
