It’s been revealed that Björk has undergone a successful laser treatment surgery on her vocal cord nodules.

The Icelandic musician, who recently spoke exclusively to Best Fit, had previously cancelled a number of upcoming shows due to inflammation in her throat.

However, the singer posted on her official website that she’s in recovery after the procedure.

Björk wrote:

“A 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.”

Her new remix album, Bastards, is available now through One Little Indian.
