Björk Is Planning a 'Utopia' Live Album with Even More Flute
Björk just released her new album Utopia, but the Icelandic hero is already looking to release a live version of the record — and with even more flute.

While the studio version of Utopia contains a 12-piece flute ensemble, apparently that still isn't enough for Björk, who also embraced the wind instrument for the album's various press photos. While speaking to Matt Wilkinson on Apple's Beats 1 [via Stereogum], she revealed her plans for the live album, saying it would be even heavier on the flute.

"There were a lot of flute things I didn't completely explore, like more soloists and mysterious kind of flute playing, and I'm gonna be rehearsing with the flute players here in Iceland," she said of her plans for the upcoming Utopia live album.

Björk added, "I just want it to happen organically in early spring. We have some additional flute songs and some different kind of angles."
