Björk and the Hamrahlíð Choir Unveil New Version of ‘Sonnets’

    Following their version of ‘Cosmogony’, Björk has once again collaborated with the Icelandic Hamrahlid Choir for a new version of her track ‘Sonnets’. Composed by Björk and set to the words of an e. e. cummings poem, ‘Sonnets’ was originally a choral piece taken from her 2004 vocal album Medúlla. Listen to Björk’s new choral arrangement of the track below.

    Björk herself was a member of the choir when she was a teenager, and later collaborated with them on her 2017 LP Utopia as well as her subsequent tour. The Hamrahlíð Choir are releasing a new album this Friday (December 4) called Come and Be Joyful through Björk’s longtime label One Little Independent, which will include ‘Cosmogony’ and ‘Sonnets’.
