Björk is back and as usual she takes music to another level. She is obviously an artist that isn’t trying to be different and innovative … she just is.
Björk’s forthcoming seventh studio album “Biophilia” will drop on the 26th of September 2011 and it’s most definitely …something else. Her first Crystalline is one that can’t be ignored. The rest of the material from the album was debuted during a concert series held this summer at the Manchester International Festival.
The album is “partly recorded” on an iPad and, as well as a standard CD release, it will also be released in the form of a series of apps.Biophilia will be the world’s “first app album” in collaboration with Apple. The Biophilia App is available on iTunes since July 19th.
Björk has collaborated with artists, designers, scientists, instrument makers, writers and software developers to create an extraordinary multimedia exploration of the universe and its physical forces, processes and structures – of which music is a part.
Biophilia is released as ten in-app experiences that are accessed as you fly through a three-dimensional galaxy that accompanies the album’s theme song Cosmogony. All of the album’s songs gradually become available inside Biophilia as interactive experiences, beginning with the first single Crystalline.
