Icelandic singer/songwriter Bjork underwent vocal cord surgery several weeks ago, and is letting fans know that she's feeling better now.

The eclectic performer explained in a note posted at her website that doctors found a polyp on her vocal chords several years ago and that she chose to deal with it naturally until recently.

"Then they discovered better technology and I got tempted into hi-tech laser stuff and I have to say, in my case anyway: surgery rocks!," Bjork stated. "I stayed quiet for 3 weeks and then started singing and definitely feel like my cords are as good as pre nodule!"

Bjork's most recent studio effort, "Biophilia," surfaced in October 2011. The album, which peaked at the top of Billboard's Dance/Electronic Albums chart, marked her first new material in four years.
