Bjork: New Album and Live Dates


Sign in to view read count

Bjork has announced plans to debut her new album Biophilia at the Manchester International Festival.

Bjork will be at MIF for a three-week residency; six shows in Campfield Market Hall for audiences of 1800, her first UK dates in over three years. Her new album is being described as a “multi-media project encompassing music, apps, internet, installations and live shows." A release date has not yet been announced.

For these six shows, Bjork will be performing new tracks from the forthcoming Biophilia studio album as well as music from her back catalogue with a small group of collaborators. A press release describes the show as having “a range of specially conceived and crafted instruments, among them a bespoke digitally-controlled pipe organ; a 30 foot pendulum that harnesses the earth's gravitational pull to create musical patterns—creating a unique bridge between the ancient and the modern; a bespoke gamelan-celeste hybrid; and a one-off extraordinary pin barrel harp."

Following the premiere in Manchester, there are plans to take the live show to major cities around the world.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
