Utopia is the ninth studio album by Icelandic singer-musician Björk.

It was primarily produced by Björk and Venezuelan electronic record producer Arca. The album received critical acclaim from music critics for its production, songwriting and Björk’s vocals and later received a nomination for ‘Best Alternative Music Album’ at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, becoming Björk’s eight nomination in the category. Björk said that air was a conscious, stylistic choice for the album after frequently composing for strings arrangements in her previous work: "I started a 12 piece Icelandic flute section and spent a few months recording and rehearsing with them. We decided to have synths that have a lot of air sounds in them and flutes that sound synthy.” She said the melodies were composed while out walking in the Icelandic wilderness, and once she had completed the melodies, she wrote the flute arrangements, later superimposing melodies. The lyrics were the final element in the songwriting process.
