Biophilia is the latest album from the perpetually experimental Bjork. The LP is the recorded accompaniment to her latest multi-media project in which she attempts to to answer: Where do music, nature and technology meet? Or more specifically “how sound works in nature, exploring the infinite expanse of the universe, from planetary systems to atomic structure”.
As previously reported, Biophilia will be unveiled at Manchester International Festival this Thursday, June 30th. Performing at the festival, Bjork will explore the themes nature, science, music and the internet through live performances, installations and apps in an interactive manner.
According to Bjork, Biophilia is a continuation of Volta, “where as Volta is more about antropology, this is kind of without the humans.”
‘Crystalline’ is the first full track to be heard from the project and the squelching electronics and polyrhythmics hark back to Homogenic with a Post-era pop aesthetic, certainly the drum and bass break down smacks of 1995, resulting a in a progressive and classic Bjork tune.
In other news, Bjork has leaked what appears to be the album cover for Biophilia.
