Bjork Cured Vocal Problems With Laser Surgery
NME reports that Bjork has cured her vocal problems by having laser surgery. She just released her remix album Bastards earlier this month with work from Hudson Mohawke and Death Grips.
She has suffered over the years with vocal chord issues and was forced to cancel several live shows in Argentina, Spain, Portugal and Brazil to promote her Biophilia album earlier this year.
She posted an update on her official website, in which she talked about how she decided to opt for surgery. She wrote: “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! 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 all the warmth.“
