Do you want to hear the new Björk album?

Well, I certainly do, but I’m not going to.

Out of respect for one of the most influential artists of our generation, not only from Iceland, I’m going to wait until the album is officially released. I know how I’d feel if some photographs I took for a client were shown publicly before the client saw them, or if images I were planning to reveal at an exhibition were leaked in advance of the opening night.

If you have a pre-release copy for review, then fair enough. But if you don’t and you’ve actively sought out the album, or are thinking of doing so, please have some respect for the artist and think again.
