björk, facebook quote: > i am incredibly honoured to announce that The Haxan Cloak will be doing my festivals with me this summer !!!!

" everybody knows it’s not about us ; it’s about this other , shamanic , kind of liberating character that sleeps somewhere inside us that is dying to get out . and if there ever is a time and a place to air it , it’s a festival . " - björk

dear audience
i would like to thank everyone for the concert last night !!!!!! i have no words to describe how grateful i am for this tour : i would like to thank the crew and the promoters and the musicians and the management , the designers . and most of all my personal little team and the audience !!! these have truly been some of my most sublime moments !! singing this album has been intense and the internal clock of it different to the other ones . it has sort of had to behave in its own little way . both the urgency of the leak and now this sudden closure for reasons beyond my control is characteristic of that . i hope through the years i have earned enough tourkarma points to get your support for this .
i have started writing new songs and feel the best most natural pathway to go is to let this beast flow its natural course and start anew
best intentions

last vulnicura show review: You’re headlining Wilderness this year. What appeals to you about it as a festival ? 
‘I think it has to do with the kind of music I make. I’m not middle of the road. My songs get very well supported either in a delicate, beautiful indoor setting or an extreme, outdoor setting like a forest or by the ocean. A sports arena is not doing me any favours, and I’m not doing it any favours !’ Time Out - Mai 2015
An impressive but off-kilter set of break-up songs, outlandish costumery and not much crowd-pleasing
Visiting Wilderness Festival could have done wonders for Björk’s marriage. Learning to wild swim or how to “breathe yourself better”. Getting down to Funkadelic ; feasting at Raymond Blanc’s long table ; catching some al fresco opera. (I’m not sure where quizzing economist Ha-Joon Chang or philosopher John Gray fit in.) Perfect romantic R and R in acres of sylvan parkland ? Then again, no. The Icelandic singer split from visual artist Matthew Barney in 2013. Split bitterly.
And so she headlined on Friday night with music from Vulnicura , a break-up album that overshares like an avant-garde Kardashian through the media of obtuse electronica, counselling-room recitative and mournful strings. Not obvious festival material. Björk never does obvious. But at an event where many revellers took a nautical approach to their dress, she sailed too close to the rocks of self-parody.
In front of the white-clad Heritage Orchestra (plus laptop man and drummer), the 49-year-old wore a crimson gown with what appeared to be a translucent, exoskeletal disc on the front. Against a video of the life cycle of the moth, the plinky sonic Chinoiserie and militaristic drums of “Notget” made an arresting opener, terminating with fireworks and pink smoke. Next, the classic “Hunter”, creeping ominously to close-up footage of spiders, suggested the programme might be kind to a crowd itching to dance. It was not to be.
“Lionsong” went with a disembodied swoon, yet “Stonemilker” and “Family” felt wallowy rather than stimulatingly weird. The interminable “Black Lake” sounded like air spluttering slowly from an expensively glittery balloon. Older tracks “Unravel”, a twisted lullaby, and “Possibly Maybe”, with superbly woody, angular percussion, started a shift in mood. All blurred, buzzy synths, “Army of Me” steamed towards standout status like a runaway thresher. On screen, wasps attacked a beehive. Then “5 Years” swung along as if an intergalactic quarry work-song. The rest of the set immolated itself with fissive breakbeats, and more pyrotechnics. Impressive, but hardly party time.
For the finale, even the ecstatic shimmer of “Hyperballad” had a darker undertow. Now that Björk has cancelled the remainder of her European tour, there is unlikely to be a similar show anywhere else again this year — for good and ill.
