Bjork to release virtual reality edition of Vulnicura album

Bjork is set to re-issue her 2015 album Vulnicura as a virtual reality edition.
The set will include the original seven-song record, along with visuals that have been touring the world as part of the Bjork Digital Exhibition since 2016.
Announcing the project on Instagram, the Icelandic musician revealed it will be available for download via an “accessible gaming platform available to everyone”.
“Vulnicura VR has been a long journey which started when me and Andy Thomas Huang started talking about how we wanted to document (album track) Stonemilker,” she explained. “We then filmed it on a 360 camera on a beach in Iceland in November 2014.”
After successfully working on Stonemilker, the star set out to capture visuals for the remaining album tracks, leading to the completion of the project.
“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,” she continued. “With every challenge try to turn it into an additional gift for the ideology in the music.”
Vulnicura was one of 2015’s most critically acclaimed albums, and ranked highly on several year-end charts. The new set arrives on Friday (06Sep19).
