Vespertine is the fifth studio album by the Icelandic recording artist Björk, released on 27 August 2001. On this album, Björk creates a quiet, introverted world of microbeats and personal lyrics. On the cover she can be seen wearing the swan dress that caused a stir at the 2001 Academy Awards. The album yielded the singles "Hidden Place", "Pagan Poetry" and "Cocoon". The album's lead single, "Hidden Place", is the only single from the album to have charted in the United States.
