6 Music's Wise Woman on Boxing Day, Kate Tempest, picks this programme celebrating one of the most successful and iconic female musicians of our time, Bjork.

The Icelandic singer has talked about female musician struggling to be given credit for their creative work.

In this programme Miranda Sawyer speaks intimately to Bjork about the creative process of her songwriting, which can often begin with a colour in her head. She covers topics ranging from co-producing Vulnicura, her ninth studio album with Arca and The Haxan Cloak, documenting the breakdown of her relationship with artist Matthew Barney, the recurring themes of interconnections between music, technology and nature, and the creation of an exclusive virtual reality audio guide for the retrospective with her friend and collaborator Sjon.

As part of our Wise Women special, Kate Tempest picks Army of Me: Bjork Now.
