Last week, it was announced that many dates outstanding on Björk's current tour had been cancelled. At the time, this was blamed on a "scheduling conflict."

However, Björk has posted a statement about the cancellations on Facebook, in which she cites "reasons beyond my control" and speaks of the album Vulnicura as an independent entity in itself. What with all the people beside Björk herself most probably involved in the album from its inception to tour management, I can imagine it probably does feel out of one's control.

Read the whole statement below.

dear audiencei would like to thank everyone for the concert last night !!!!!! i have no words to describe how grateful...
