Björk has revealed that her new record was partly inspired by dating, describing it as her “ Tinder album ”. The Icelandic musician last put out a record in January 2015 with ‘Vulnicura’. The album saw her collaborate with Arca and Haxan Cloak, while it detailed her break-up from artist Matthew Barney.

The Fall’ s new album isn’t very good, but so what? Descriptions of the new tracks make them sound as strange and intoxicating as the rest of Björk ’ s recent work, but we’re mostly just delighted at the mental image of someone lazily browsing their way through Tinder , only to come across an eclectic

Björk says her new record is her "Tinder album".

The Icelandic singer-songwriter hasn't released a record since 'Vulnicura' in 2015 - but has now given her fans an insight into what they can expect from her new album.

She explained: "This is like my Tinder album. It's about that search [for utopia] - and about being in love.

"Spending time with a person you enjoy on every level is obviously utopia, you know? I mean, it's real. It's when the dream becomes real."

Björk's last album detailed her break-up from artist Matthew Barney, but the 51-year-old star has claimed her new record focuses more on her dating life.

  Swipe Right: Man Utd in Talks Over New Sleeve Sponsor to Help Them Find Love on the Pitch ​Manchester United have sensationally held talks with representatives from online dating service Tinder about becoming their first shirt sleeve sponsor, according to a report from the Mail. United appear to have taken a big swipe at their competitors with the talks, as if the deal comes off then it could blow all other sleeve sponsorship fees so far right out of the water. Tinder are reported to be offering a huge £12m-a-year for the opportunity, which will be new to Premier League clubs this season.

So far, not much is known about the record (no title, track listing, or even album cover), but according to a new cover story on the Icelandic legend for Dazed's Autumn 2017 issue, Björk ' s latest is "about being in love." Describing it as her " Tinder record

Yesterday, Björk announced that her new album would be “coming out very soon.” While little is known about the upcoming release, Björk has revealed in a new interview with Dazed that it will be her “ Tinder record .”

She told Dazed magazine: "I set myself up with the last album being a heartbreak album, so everyone's gonna be like, 'Are you married?' with this one. But ... it's too fragile still.

"I think, if I could, I'd just say this is my dating album. Let's just leave it there."

Meanwhile, Björk previously bemoaned the lack of women writing music about serious issues.

The singer said female artists face a pressure to focus their music on specific issues.

Writing on Facebook in December, she said: "Women in music are allowed to be singer songwriters singing about their boyfriends. If they change the subject matter to atoms, galaxies, activism, nerdy math beat editing or anything else than being performers singing about their loved ones they get criticized: journalists feel there is just something missing ... as if our only lingo is emo ...

"If we dont cut our chest open and bleed about the men and children in our lives we are cheating our audience. (sic)"

Pink is 'certifiably, insanely proud' of new album .
Pink has told fans she's "certifiably, insanely proud" of her new album Beautiful Trauma. The 37-year-old singer's last album was The Truth About Love in 2012 and, aside from a few singles, she's been concentrating almost entirely on her personal life and raising her two children Willow and Jameson with husband Carey Hart. But now Pink is getting her career back on track, and announced the name of her new record as she also revealed the cover art on her Instagram page on Wednesday (09Aug17). She also told fans that the first single off the record, What About Us, was being released ahead of the album dropping on 13 October. "I could not be more excited right now. My single comes out today What About Us and my new album Beautiful Trauma comes out October 13th," she wrote. "I'm certifiably, insanely proud of this album. It's been a while, and I'm grateful for all the years we've had. Looking forward to the next chapter with you." The cover shows Pink showcasing her figure in a bedazzled corset, with a cream and pink satin jacket and tulle skirt worn over the top. She stands in front of a rundown gas station for the image, while sunglasses, hoop earrings and pink lipstick finish off her look. Pink made her performance comeback at the Summerfest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, last month, but things didn't go quite to plan as she and her six-year-old daughter Willow found themselves temporarily trapped in a malfunctioning elevator. Pink shared an Instagram photo of the pair sitting helpless on the floor of the elevator, and captioned it: "Stuck in an elevator (it's getting hot in here) #help". Luckily, help soon arrived and the singer was able to proceed with the show - her first in four years - as planned.
