Bjork’s Otherworldly ‘Utopia’ Cover Is A Lot To Process
Bjork revealed the cover of her Utopia LP (due November 24) yesterday and it’s a lot to process. Looking like a cross between an alien and an edgy contestant on RuPaul’s Drag Race, the Icelandic diva rocks otherworldly makeup, gills and a fright wig. She also appears to have a plucked bird in her collar. “I am so overwhelmingly humble while announcing my album utopia is coming out end of nov,” the 51-year-old wrote on Instagram. “I can’t wait for you to hear it.”
“This is the cover made by the warm extraordinary talented @truekanda and was assisted by me, @james.t.merry and @isshehungry,” Bjork continued. “Thank you for telepathically getting me!!” Apart from out-there artwork, what can we expect from the iconoclast’s latest? A little romance! She called it her “Tinder album” in Dazed, explaining that it’s “about being in love. Spending time with a person you enjoy on every level is obviously utopia.” See the cover art in all its glory below.
