The Icelandic artist released Utopia in 2017, with flutes playing a major role throughout the record.
Included in this new boxset will be 14 flutes, handpicked by Björk and custom made in collaboration with French company Quelle est Belle.
All will be encased in a bespoke perspex case designed by M/M (Paris). Check out an unboxing video below:
Björk has stated that “Utopia is so much about birdsongs and sonically the mutation between synth/bird, bird/flute, flute/synth, so I got very excited when I found these handmade wooden flutes imitating precisely particular birds.”
The announcement comes ahead of her Cornucopia tour, which is heading to Mexico and Europe, following a recent New York debut.
