Bjork’s lions, insects and whiskey inspiration

Barely anyone will raise a brow at the inspiration for some of Bjork‘s new album material which is midway through completion.

Speaking with Icelandic publication Fréttablaðið the former Sugarcube reflected on her experiences at a National Geographic conference, “I saw 100 talks and met eccentric people who had been in Africa for four years with lions and insects. Then one night after drinking whiskey with them I began to hear stories. This is one of the collaborations I can talk about.”

Reluctant to reveal anymore the singer explained that, “I have had some bad experiences with a number of things before. I’m very superstitious. I go into the studio with a plan to go do what I have in mind, and then the idea is half dead.”

There was also talk of a tour before the end of the year.
