by Björk

“each album always starts with a feeling
that i try to shape into a sound
this time around the feeling was landing on the earth
and digging my feet into the ground
(after my last album utopia which was all island-in-the-clouds
element air and no bass )

how i experience the “now” is also woven into how it is written
this time around 7 billion of us did it together
nesting in our homes quarantining
our mutual “now” is being so long in one place
that we shot deep roots down

my new album “fossora” is about that
it is a word i made up
it is the feminine of fossore ( digger, delver, ditcher.)
so in short it means “she who digs” ( into the ground )
therefore when i was describing the sound to the musicians on it,
i would call it my mushroom album

fungus duggen down
hope you enjoy it
