Björk's forthcoming new album has been uprgraded from "coming soon" to "November". Along with that nugget of information, it's been announced that her buddy Arca has once again been drafted in to help co-produce it.

"Vulnicura was about a very personal loss, and I think this new album is about a love that’s even greater," explained Björk. "It’s about rediscovering love – but in a spiritual way, for lack of a better word.”

As you'll no doubt remember from last week's Björk-blast, the first single from the album - 'The Gate' - is set for release on September 18th. So in seven days. Mark it in your diary.

We still don't know what the album is called, but hey, at least we have a ballpark date for release.
