Björk‘s strong new interview with Pitchfork offers a lot of insight as to the creation of her new suddenly released album, Vulnicura, but maybe most interesting is the portion near the end where the Icelandic music icon addresses the idea of collaboration and how women are often discredited through their collaboration with men.

Björk raises many good points, picking out Kanye West as an example, carefully pointing out that she is not “dissing him.”

“With the last album he did,” she said in reference to Yeezus, “he got all the best beatmakers on the planet at the time to make beats for him. A lot of the time, he wasn’t even there. Yet no one would question his authorship for a second.”

This is important specifically in how the new album is being discussed, as she was not initially credited as a producer on her own album, which she in fact co-produced with Arca, with some additional work from The Haxan Cloak.
