On the occasion of celebrating and wrapping up the Utopia era, we are excited to share this special deluxe album boxset featuring 14 handmade birdcall flutes that have been individually selected by Björk.

Created in collaboration with the company Quelle est Belle from the mountains of southern France, this deluxe edition boxset comes housed in a bespoke perspex case designed by M/M (Paris). The hand-etched lid features an intricate design, while tinted side panels cast a softly coloured glow, illuminating the 14 unique birdcalls nestled inside individually assigned compartments. In the upper left corner sits a custom-made USB-C Flash drive containing the music of Utopia, along with videos, images and an exclusive, unreleased instrumental track. A discrete drawer below houses an eight-page colour booklet detailing each birdcall and providing instructions for use.

" utopia is so much about birdsong and sonically the mutation between synth/bird , bird/flute , flute/synth ....... air like that was a theme through all of the album . so i got very excited when i found these handmade wooden flutes imitating precisely particular birds . and i guess wanted you guys to have an opportunity to share that with me ........ enjoy !!! warmthness , björk "
