“It is most definitely flute and air themed and perhaps reveals the sonic environment my ears were in last year.”

Björk has released a new mix in anticipation of her upcoming album Utopia.

Made for Mixmag‘s new cover story, Björk’s mix unsurprisingly features a vast range of artists including Kelela, Kelly Lee Owens, Arca, Serpentwithfeet and Peder Mannerfelt. It also features multiple selections of flute and wind-based music before closing on a suite of birdsong recordings.

Björk also released a short note about the mix addressed to her “dearestest music-lovers!”

“Here is a little set for you,” she writes. “It is most definitely flute and air themed and perhaps reveals the sonic environment my ears were in last year. I thank all the musicians.”

Utopia is due November 24. So far Björk has released two singles, ‘The Gate’ and ‘Blissing Me’.
