Having just featured Björk‘s video for Jóga, whilst pouring accolades on both the Michel Gondry helmed clip and Sasha Raskin remix treatment, it is quite fitting that today is the first day we hear a snippet of her upcoming “app album” ‘Biophilia’.
Four years since the release of ‘Volta‘ and Björk‘ remains as cutting edge as ever. Due out in September, ‘Biophilia’ is billed as a collaboration with Apple boasting a whole new level of packaging and marketing.
Perennial collaborator Gondry is at the helm of this multimedia endeavour which will see applications and videos released into the project for fans to get their teeth into. Of course, old school listeners will also be able to get the album in the more traditional mp3 and CD format (and I never thought I’d be referring to the mp3 as a “traditional” format but that is the world we are living in)
Enjoy ‘Crystalline‘ (also streamable on Hype Machine here), the first glimpse of what to expect from ‘Biophilia’, I’m excited.
