Icelandic singer Björk moved again to her residence nation over considerations about America’s gun violence, she revealed in an interview with Pitchfork. Whereas discussing the inception of her tenth studio album, Fossora, the singer described fearing for her personal daughter Isadora’s security, citing the Sandy Hook Elementary Faculty capturing in 2012.
“The violence within the USA is on a scale I can’t even fathom,” stated Björk. “And having a daughter that’s half-American in class [in New York], 40 minutes away from Sandy Hook…”
Bjork made New York her part-time residence in 2002, after the beginning of her daughter with American artist Matthew Barney. She left for Iceland firstly of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“After we are right here, I take in all of Iceland. If one individual is killed within the north, all of us harm. It’s an island mentality,” stated Bjork. “Within the States, simply being a easy islander, all of the violence was simply an excessive amount of for me.”
Bjork, whose latest album is impressed by fungi, instructed Pitchfork that she does a lot of her finest songwriting secluded in a cabin in her lush homeland.
The self-described “easy islander” is only one of many European artists who’ve denounced America’s gun violence lately. Ozzy Osbourne revealed plans to maneuver again to England completely in February 2023, calling American gun violence “ridiculous.” British singer-songwriter Harry Kinds pledged $1 million to Everytown after the capturing of Robb Elementary Faculty in Uvalde, Texas.
“Together with all of you, I’ve been completely devastated by the latest string of mass shootings in America, culminating on the newest in Robb Elementary Faculty in Uvalde, Texas,” Kinds wrote in a press release on Instagram.
