Iceland’s favorite princess, Björk, has announced the recent polyp-removal surgery on her vocal cords was a success. The sparkling singer was diagnosed with a voice-threatening nodule earlier this year, forcing her to cancel headlining shows in São Paulo, Brazil and Barcelona, Spain, among others.

Bjork's "Biophilia"

In typical odd-duck fashion—or swan, for that matter?—the pop star posted a cute-as-a-button statement on her official website, addressing the surgery, her recovery and an eagerness to hit the stage again.

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.

If all goes well, the orange-wigged, dulcimer-plucking songstress will re-emerge and mystify us once again in early 2013, performing “Moon” and other tracks from her most recent album, Biophilia.
