Bjork – ‘Crystalline’


The first song from Bjork’s multimedia album Biophilia which will encompass music, iPad apps installations and more has just been released. ‘Crystalline’ is our first glimpse into the project that promises to examine “how sound works in nature, exploring the infinite expanse of the universe, from planetary systems to atomic structure”. So far, so ambitious.

Bjork is debuting new material starting tomorrow night at Manchester International Festival.

Another thing to look forward to – the Omar Souleyman remix:
