Björk Announces Utopia Box Set With 14 Handmade Birdcall Flutes

Björk has been taking Utopia on tour again with Cornucopia, a new theatrical stage show based on her 2017 album. And now she’s reissuing the album itself with a new deluxe box set featuring 14 handmade birdcall flutes individually selected by Björk. As she explains in a statement:

utopia is so much about birdsong and sonically the mutation between synth/bird , bird/flute , flute/synth ……. air like that was a theme through all of the album . so i got very excited when i found these handmade wooden flutes imitating precisely particular birds . and i guess wanted you guys to have an opportunity to share that with me …….. enjoy !!!

Created in collaboration with the French company Quelle est Belle, the box set comes in a bespoke perspex case with an intricate design and tinted side panels designed by M/M (Paris). It’ll set you back a cool £500. Watch an unboxing video announcing the box set below.

The Utopia box set is out 11/1 via One Little Indian. Pre-order it here.
