It was announced today (March 21) that Björk, as well as Missy Elliott, Frank Ocean and Nine Inch Nails will headline the FYF Festival in July. It’s a ways away, but probably not enough time for the influential singer to finalize her forthcoming album and perform it. But she’s close.

According to director Andrew Thomas Huang, who directed the 360 degree virtual reality experience for “Stonemilker,” as well as videos for “Black Lake” and “Mutual Core,” Björk has written and conceptualized a majority of her Vulnicura followup, which he labeled “so heavy — and fun and exciting.”

“I think it’s a bit too early for me to say at the moment, but, you know, Björk’s already written quite a bit of it,” he tells The Fader of the new record. “We just want to evolve what we did in Vulnicura, which was so personal and introspective. What I can say is this new album’s gonna be really future-facing, in a hopeful way that I think is needed right now. I’m excited. It will probably be utilizing more of my visual effects background as well.”

Take a peek at that FYF Festival setlist I mentioned as well as some of Huang’s collaborations with Björk below.
