Björk goes deep in her new podcast series, breaking down her albums one track at a time.

Sonic Symbolism explores the textures, timbres and emotional landscapes of my back catalogue, from Debut to Utopia.

Björk is making a return. The Icelandic musician has announced her tenth album, Fossora, to be released this autumn. Not only does it showcase the work of the acclaimed producer Arca (she previously collaborated with him on 2015’s Vulnicura) but also sees the artist experiment with a new range of sounds including brooding bass clarinet and violent outbursts of gabber.

I've been asked what the differences are between my albums, and I find it quickest to use visual short cuts. That's kind of why my album covers are almost like homemade tarot cards. The image on the front might seem like just a visual moment, but for me it is simply describing the sound of it. The singer said in a assertion announcing the project. “That’s type of why my album covers are nearly like selfmade tarot cards. The photograph at the the front would possibly seem like only a visual moment, but for me it's miles simply describing the sound of it… Perhaps you can call it a few type of a sonic symbolism?”

The first 3 episodes of Sonic Symbolism, exploring Debut, Post, and Homogenic, will be launched on September 1. New instalments will continue to arrive weekly till mid-October.
