About Heiðrik Sings The Björk Song Book

Critically acclaimed Faroese singer-songwriter Heiðrik á Heygum just released his 3rd album – a jazz interpretation of a select songs written by Björk, recorded in the Faroe Islands during the pandemic. It is an ensemble on vocals, piano, bass, drums, and guitar featuring a few guest musicians. The album’s purpose is to bring Björk Guðmundsdóttir’s fantastic jazz songwriting to light and show a new interpretation of one of the most renowned Nordic artists. Heiðrik says, “For many years I’ve dreamt of interpreting songs from Björk’s catalog because as a jazz singer, I have noticed jazz inspiration in her melodies and song structure from a young age. I saw potential in interpreting her alternative universe to jazz and digging into the heart of those melodies. I have one of the best jazz musicians alongside me to interpret these songs and together, we have made arrangements I’m very proud of.”
