Bjork has released the first material from her wildly ambitious ‘Biophilia’ project.
Launched at the Manchester International Festival, Bjork’s ‘Biophilia’ project is one of the most ambitious undertakings in the singer’s career. Not just the music – which is typically glorious – but the mixture of nature, technology and visuals.
Long since sold out, the performances in Manchester have caused enormous debate. Now those not lucky enough to grab tickets can listen to two tracks from the project, with the release of a new single.
Drawn from ‘Biophilia’ two singles are available on iTunes right now, with One Little Indian handling the release of ‘Cosmology’ and ‘Crystalline’. Alongside this, Bjork has released the first apps from ‘Biophilia’ which are available for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
‘Crystalline’ is set to be the subject of a new video. Directed by long term Bjork collaborator Michel Gondry the video will be given a premiere via YouTube on July 26th.
Still creating a lot of confusion amongst fans, ‘Biophilia’ can be broken down into five essential elements:
1. An album, containing ten tracks, which was produced by Bjork. Available on five distinct formats (including plenty of bonus reading material) pre-orders will be taken from August 12th.
2. Apps. Combining music and visuals these explore the natural themes and will be available on a variety of formats.
3. Live shows. Aside from Manchester International Festival the singer plans to bring ‘Biophilia’ to cities around the world.
4. Documentary. A 90 minute documentary on ‘Biophilia’ is current in the works and will include live footage, interviews and more.
5. A website. Acting as a hub for ‘Biophilia’ related information you can access it HERE.
Bjork is set to release ‘Biophilia’ as a studio album on September 27th.
