Björk has announced Vulnicura Strings (Vulnicura: The Acoustic Version), a remake of her 2015 LP that only features strings and her voice. It will be released digitally and on CD on November 6, with vinyl following on December 4. She’s also shared the remade “Lionsong”, which you can listen to below.
In addition to violin solos by Una Sveinbjarnardóttir, the release also features the world’s only viola organista, an instrument originally designed by Leonardo da Vinci. According to Björk’s website, “the instrument uses a friction belt to vibrate individual strings (similar to a violin), with the strings selected by pressing keys on the keyboard (similar to an organ).”
