Today, Björk announced Vulnicura Strings, which is to be released November 6 digitally and December 4 on vinyl. The Icelandic artist describes the album as “Vulnicura: the acoustic version — strings, voice and viola organista only.” A viola organista, by the way, is an instrument invented by Leonardo da Vinci, and according to Wikipedia, “no extant instrument constructed directly from Leonardo's incomplete designs is known.” Until now, of course. #BasedBjörk
