Un album live pour Utopia au printemps ?

À peine disponible, l’univers d’Utopia pourrait s’étoffer au-delà de l’album.

Interviewée par la radio Beats 1, Björk a révélé réfléchir à un projet d’album live autour des flûtes. Elle souhaite d’abord faire une pause, mais elle n’exclut pas l’idée de sortir une nouvelle version d’Utopia au printemps.

En pleine préparation pour la tournée Utopia avec son ensemble de douze flûtistes islandaises, Björk a déjà quelques chutes d’Utopia sous la main avec notamment des morceaux solo de flûtes et d’autres versions.

Extrait de l’interview :

"I want to take a little break and then maybe in spring arrive with an angle of the live album. I think there were a few things I didn’t completely explore, like more with soloists and mysterious kind of flute playing. And I’m gonna be rehearsing with the flute players here in Iceland. I just want it to happen organically in early spring. We have some additional flute songs and some different kind of angles."

maj du 14/12 : Björk parle à nouveau de cette version live sans les bruits d’oiseaux dans une interview pour The Creative Independent

There’s part of me that wanted to release Utopia without all the bird songs—just more streamlined. Part of me wanted to release two versions of it, like one was just really clean, with big silences between every song. Then it’s the other version, which I released, and which is this kind of journey. We’re trying to make it into a journey, that you kind of arrived at this place.

I was going to keep it a secret, but since you mentioned it, I’m kind of tempted. [laughs] What I’m doing now is probably going to do a live version, where I want to take the flutes further, into more sort of a virtuoso acoustic realm, and maybe then I will skip the birds.
