Björk has revealed her new album title. During a Facebook Live interview with Nowness, she said the record is called Utopia. Watch the full discussion below. (She reveals the title around the 47:30 mark.) Last year, Björk said, “The last album [Vulnicura], we sort of call it ‘hell’—it was like divorce! So we are doing paradise now. Utopia. We have done hell, we have earned some points.” More recently, describing the LP, Björk called it her “Tinder record,” and said it’s “about being in love. Spending time with a person you enjoy on every level is obviously utopia.” The album, which includes her new single “The Gate,” is set to come out in November.

The name doesn't really stand out. It sounds like most of her other titles.

I hope this bitch tours not far from where I live. Last time she went to rome, but between the tickets (150+ euros) and the trip it was just too expensive for my poor ass back then.

Been a fan since the Sugarcubes - but man she is really trying me AGAIN with this single. I respect her artistry, but as a moderate fan I just wish she'd release singles that are fresh and at least somewhat palatable to non-diehards. The sound and unwieldy length of this first single is not a way to entice me into wanting more. It's too much with too little payoff. Always cool visuals - I'll give her that. I just long for some fresh new songs with even a sliver of the pop sensibility found on her first 3 solo albums and on Volta, even though I didn't love the latter either. It was at least different without being a total snoozefest.

I love it. It's very Pennywise 1990.

The Gate gets so much undeserved hate, it's a beautiful lead. I've never experienced a Björk album not having any hype. Folks?

I love how she's so out there and this weird alternative artist but that cover is just atrocious. What does it suppose to represent? And what's with the mustache??

I'm sure she could explain the image down to each color and texture being used - of course in her spastic but sweet voice with full throttle icelandic accent.

God love her.
