Vulnicura was released all the way back in January, and still stands as one of the best albums of the year. Björk’s been messing with her latest creation in interesting ways since its release, first through a three part remix project, and now through a special “strings-only” version of the record. The website’s also dubbing it the “acoustic” cut of the album, which I guess is technically true, but these songs sound just as grand with only the strings, her voice, and the viola organista in play. It’ll be available digitally and on vinyl and CD on 12/4. Today, she’s shared the stripped-down version of “Lionsong” — listen below.
