Björk Announces New Vulnicura VR Experience

Music News, News

Björk is re-releasing her 2015 studio album Vulnicura as a virtual reality experience. The VR version of Vulnicura collects the visuals that have toured museums as part of the Björk Digital exhibition and have now been updated for a final version. The new experience is available this Friday, September 6. Find Björk’s announcement below.

Vulnicura VR has been a long journey which started when me and Andy Thomas Huang started talking about how we wanted to document ‘Stonemilker,’” Björk wrote in a statement. “We then filmed it on a 360 camera on a beach in Iceland in November 2014.”

She added, “The whole process has been an improvisation, trying to keep faith in formats. It is too easy for musicians to turn pessimistic after CDs have evaporated but I wanted to try to have courage to grow along with how 360 sound and vision tech was growing. With every challenge try to turn it into an additional gift for the ideology in the music.

Along with “Stonemilker,” the VR experience has visuals for “Lionsong,” “Notget,” “Mouth Mantra,” “Quicksand,” “Black Lake,” and “Family.” Each song on the album is also accompanied by a new 360º animated score by Stephen Malinowski.

Following the release of Vulnicura, Björk shared Vulnicura Strings—a remake of the LP using only strings as accompaniment—and Vulnicura Live. Björk’s most recent studio album was 2017’s Utopia.
