Bjork has apologised to fans for cancelling live shows in 2012 and hinted that she will be back on the road next year.

The Icelandic superstar posted a personal message to fans on Facebook, in which she discussed the nodule problems which forced the singer to pull out of gigs including her slot at Primavera Festival earlier in 2012.

Bjork writes: "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 ."

She finishes the message with an apology - and a hint that she is already planning live shows in 2013.

"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."


Bjork returned to the stage at Denmark's Roskilde Festival in July 2012

Earlier in 2012 it was revealed that Bjork would be teaming up with legendary BBC star David Attenborough for a new Channel 4 documentary. 

Attenborough and Bjork: The Nature Of Musicwill look at the evolution of music, the relationship we have with music and the evolution of music technology - and how it will affect our relationship with music in the future.
