Björk collaborates with Hamrahlíð Choir on new track “Sonnets” from album Come and be Joyful

THE HAMRAHLÍÐ CHOIR unveil their new single “Sonnets” today from their upcoming album Come and be Joyful, out December 4; check it out HERE. Composed by Björk and set to a poem by e e cummings, “Sonnets” is an entirely acapella work which was first performed by the Hamrahlíð Choir at the premiere performance of Björk’s critically acclaimed Cornucopia show at The Shed, New York, last yearThe Choir shared the album’s lead single “Cosmogony” earlier this month. DAZED called the track a “choral masterpiece”; check it out HERE and pre-order the album HERE.
Björk herself was a member of the choir as a teenager, and as a result has been a long-time collaborator. As such a fan of the choir’s work and completely unique sound, Björk featured them on both the Utopia album and had all 52 choristers accompany her around the world to perform at every live show during the Cornucopia tour.
Come and be Joyful features Icelandic folk songs along with two collaborative Björk covers – “Cosmogony” & “Sonnets”, based on Björk’s own arrangements. The album is built out from the choir’s phenomenal support set at the Cornucopia live shows, with additional tracks added following the end of the tour.
Björk began her collaboration with The Hamrahlíð Choir in 2017, singing on her album Utopia, and this collaboration continued with concerts including those at The Shed, New York City, in May and June 2019 and northern Europe in November and December the same year.
