The song was inspired by the suicide of Björk’s stalker Ricardo López, who had attempted to kill (or disfigure) her using a letter bomb rigged with sulfuric acid. To deal with the stress of being at home during this incident, Björk imagined herself as the protagonist in a Spanish soap opera. The character’s image inspired a song titled “So Broken” which she sang to herself in her kitchen.

It’s easier to create a utopia in isolation. If only we didn’t have this misbegotten, biologic desire to welcome someone else into our world. Another person? With me right now? I’m good, thanks. Yet most of us persist in this welcoming, an act that requires so much patience, compassion, and sacrifice because we believe that by co-organizing a perfect world for two, we might come closer to knowing love. Add to this small world a child and it seems like a miracle—a small paradise immune to the horrors outside of it. “If you feel this world is not heading the right way,” Björk said recently, “you have to be DIY and make a little fortress.” It’s within this matriarchal frame that Björk and her co-producer Alejandro Ghersi (aka Arca ) created the challenging album Utopia. It’s a long, skittering discovery of googly-eyed romance, a rebuke of the violence inherited by men, and a generous offering of love song after love song, rendered musically with unerring elegance and passion.
