Vulnicura Strings (The Acoustic Versions – Strings, Voice and Viola Organista Only), or simply Vulnicura Strings, is an acoustic album released by Icelandic singer-songwriter Björk as a companion to her 2015 album, Vulnicura. Vulnicura Strings has been described as a more uncompromising and intimate take on Björk's breakup album, featuring strings-only versions of the Vulnicura tracks, with the omission of "History of Touches". Also the version of "Family" omits the vocals.
In addition to Björk's voice and string arrangements, the new version of Vulnicura features the world's only "viola organista. Vulnicura Strings is her first acoustic album, and it'll be interesting to hear how the album's stormier and more cluttered tracks transform when they're only made up of softer parts.
Following from the success of this year's Vulnicura LP, Iceland's Bjork has decided to release an acoustic companion made up of string-only reinterpretations; a more abstract and pensive piece, if you will. One Little Indian is the label, of course, but this time there are strictly no beats, and the only concrete sounds within it are the subtle and placid wails of Bjork's own voice

björk used the only ‘viola organista’ in the world to perform some of the arrangements; an instrument which was designed originally by leonardo da vinci but not built until after his lifetime. the instrument uses a friction belt to vibrate individual strings (similar to a violin), with the strings selected by pressing keys on the keyboard (similar to an organ). the. instrument was recorded in krakow, poland by its constructor sławomir zubrzycki and here is where the album reached completion. pressed on 12" heavyweight 180g black vinyl. 2 x vinyl with gatefold sleeve.
