Icelandic singer Bjork plans to sell her New York home and buy a boat for her and American partner, Matthew Barney to live in instead.

The HIDDEN PLACE star grew up near the sea in her native Reykjavik, and admits she's obsessed with ships and the ocean.

And she's looking for a nautical home in a bid to calm her eccentric personality and inspire her music.

She explains, "We could travel around and drop anchor wherever we found inspiration. I have always thought it would be great to make some kind of ship symphony. I don't know why I haven't thought of living on a boat before.

"Hopefully it will make me less mad and my music more mad."
