Björk Undergoes Vocal Cord Surgery, Plans Paris Shows in 2013

Icelandic songstress Björk has undergone successful surgery to remove a polyp from her vocal cords. Apparently all went well with the procedure and she reports her voice is back in tiptop shape.

Here is the statement she posted on her website:

few years ago doctors found a vocal polyp on me chords … i decided to go the natural way and for 4 years did stretches and tackled it with different foods and what not . then they discovered better technology and i got tempted into hi tech lazer stuff and i have to say , in my case anyway : surgery rocks ! i stayed quiet for 3 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 . im sorry i had to cancel stuff earlier in the year , didnt 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 ,björk.

In related news Björk will bring the Biophilia live show to Paris for a very special six-night residency in February and March 2013. Tickets will be available from December 10th at Avosbillets.
