Vespertine is the fourth studio album by Icelandic recording artist Björk. It was released on 27 August 2001 in the United Kingdom by One Little Indian Records and in the United States by Elektra Entertainment. Production on the album began during the filming of Dancer in the Dark, which was characterized by conflict between her and director Lars von Trier. Vespertine's sound reflected Björk's newly found interest in the music of artists such as Opiate and Console, who were also enlisted as producers.
Björk’s Vespertine, released in August 2001, may be the first (and last) album written for the Napster age. With her fifth studio release, and coming off the expansive, futuristic Homogenic, Björk set out to make an intimate album of micro-beats and minimalist production. It was the kind of production that would lose none of its force when downloaded from the file-sharing sites flourishing at the time. At the finishing stages of Vespertine, Björk sent tracks to virtuoso producers Thomas Knak and Matmos. In this video(at the 10:16 mark) about the making of Vespertine, Matmos recounts one of Björk’s most remarkable requests: Matmos: I think the hardest request she had wa. he wanted to get the sound of little buds on a branch of a pussywillow bursting open. It’s a brilliant idea.
A companion album to 2001's critically acclaimed Vespertine, Vespertine Live was originally released in the 5 disc Live Box set in 2003 and was later released separately on 1 June 2004 by One Little Indian records.

The beauty of Vespertine's subtlety may be lost on Björk fans demanding another leap like the one she made between Post and Homogenic, but like the rest of the album, its innovations are intimate and intricate.
