The new year just got a bit quirkier. Björk stumbled onto Twitter this week to announce her first album in four years is on its way, and she describes it in possibly the most Björk way possible. The announcement of the album, “Vulnicura,” came along with a handwritten note describing what we can expect from the Icelandic iconclast’s new tunes. “The songs are called ‘Stonemilker,’ ‘Lionsong,’ ‘History of Touches,’ ‘Black Lake,’ ‘Family,’ Notget,’ ‘Atom Dance,’ ‘Mouth Mantra’ and ‘Quicksand,'” she writes. “I hope you will enjoy it!”

I can already see “Mouth Mantra” and “History of Touches” becoming club hits. The new work, her ninth studio studio album and the first since her experimental “Biophilia” in 2011, will be released in March.
