Medúlla is the fifth studio album by Icelandic recording artist Björk.

After her electronic–influenced previous album Vespertine (2001), Björk intended to make an album almost entirely a cappella constructed with human vocals. For the project, she collaborated with vocal artists such as Mike Patton of rock band Faith No More, beatboxers Rahzel and Dokaka, as well as Inuit throat singer Tanya Gillis. The album's title derives from the Latin word for ‘marrow’. Medúlla received generally positive reviews from critics, with many calling it ‘unique’, although others deemed it ‘confusing’. The album was also commercially successful, reaching number one in Belgium and France, while also peaking within the top ten in the United Kingdom. Medúlla is estimated to have sold more than a million copies worldwide, and received two Grammy Award nominations at the 47th Grammy Awards. The album was also featured in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.
