Mercury - mind & communication
Venus - love & attraction
Mars - drive & energy
Jupiter - luck, growth & wisdom
Saturn - discipline, fears & challenges
Uranus - change & originality
Neptune - dreams & healing
Pluto - power & transformation

am i wrong, or did she talk in an interview about the album being 'somewhere in space'?

I'm not 100% sure but I thought she said "not on earth" which could mean space or some other utopia like world

the theme of the new album is searching for Utopia with references to tinder. So you go out on a horrendous tinder date, so what do you do? Make some lame excuse to leave and go and get sloshed till the early hours of the morning. Wake up, hangover from hell. You go searching for your utopia out of this hell and we all know what that is

Good sausage

And what is sausage in Icelandic (according to Google)?

i like the word 'arcadia'.

In European Renaissance arts, Arcadia was celebrated as an unspoiled, harmonious wilderness.


and it's a term for 'utopia'. but it clearly has too much reference to her collaborator, so it's not meant quite serious (by me). :wink:

I guess closest to the symbolism is Neptune.
But Neptune is more about the sea, so I don't see the flower theme here

some of the flowers in the dazed mag cover look like brain coral, there's blue, wavy tulle and the flower in his mouth comes from australia...

Mod's post has 32 letters and was posted on august 3rd (8/3). So divide 32 by 8 the result by 3 and it's 1.33 which is close to one. is the title a number?!?! is it one?!?! :hyper:
Also note the black and white ducks, this is a clearly a sign the artwork is in black and white. The ellipsis must mean a single is coming in three weeks.


Nice interpretation, but I'm afraid it strays far from the truth.

:blackduck: :duck: is a reference to the taoist taijitu

Meanwhile, 32 letters + the 3rd = 35, but we're not finished

The taijitu is commonly referred to as yin and yang, representing duality
Yin and yang together, however, are called "wuji", representing monism (one)

So, 32 letters + the 3rd + wuji = 36

Where am I going with this?

The number 36 is a reference to Wu Tang Clan's debut album Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
Meanwhile August, the 8th month, is a reference to their fifth album 8 Diagrams

August as the 8th month is also a reference to Oneohtrix Point Never's Betrayed In The Octagon

In the Dazed article, Björk talks about Anohni and Future Feminism

When we bring this all together, mod is telling us that the album will be called Future Feminism, featuring collaborations with Anohni, OPN, AND The Wu Tang Clan

Something short and sweet. Something not pretentious. Enough Latin. Too predictable.
