Bjork has revealed that she underwent vocal cord surgery earlier this year.

Writing on her website, the Icelandic eccentric explained that doctors discovered a polyp on her vocal cord four years ago and, like fellow chanteuse Adele, she had the nodule removed via laser in what’s become a groundbreaking procedure for rock and pop stars -- Steven Tyler and Roger Daltrey among them.

The 47-year-old singer had canceled a smattering of tour dates earlier in the year.

dear friends

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.
