Björk has had an operation to fix those vocal problems she’s been having. Remember, the ones that caused her to cancel a series of live and festival appearances back in April. She says her voice is now healthier than ever, and that “surgery rocks”, so that’s nice.

Sharing the post-op update in her own inimitable style, Björk writes: “[A] few years ago doctors found a vocal polyp on me chords… I decided to go the natural way and for four years did stretches and tackled it with different foods and what not. Then they discovered better technology and I got tempted into hi-tech laser stuff and I have to say, in my case anyway: surgery rocks!”

She adds: “I stayed quiet for three weeks and then started singing and definitely feel like my chords are as good as pre nodule! It’s been very satisfying to sing all them clear notes again. I’m sorry I had to cancel stuff earlier in the year, didn’t want to talk about this until I knew for sure if it would work. So looking forward to singing for you in 2013”.

I do love Björk.
