Björk to release remix series of latest album

by Lee Williscroft-Ferris16 Mar 2012

Icelandic singer Björk has unveiled the latest stage in her Biophilia project. Released as a series of apps last year, as well as a physical album, the multimedia exploration of science, nature and music has also seen Björk design her own instruments and organise music workshops for local children. The eccentric singer debuted her new material to wide critical acclaim at last year’s Manchester International Festival.

16 April will see Björk release the first in an eight-part series of remixes, beginning with Current Value’s take on ‘Crystalline’ and ‘Solstice’. Other producers involved in the series are 6-bit, King Cannibal, Death Grips, El Guincho, Matthew Herbert, Hudson Mohawke, Alva Noto, and These New Puritans. A new collaboration will be released every two weeks.

In addition, die-hard fans of the Reykjavik-born star can get their hands on a very limited edition version of the remixes with embossed foil lettering designed by m/m.

Björk is recognised as an artist with no fear of allowing others to reinterpret her work. One such example was 2005’s Army Of Me: Remixes and Covers, a collection of 17 versions of the singer’s seminal 1995 hit by other artists, including Patrick Wolf. You can see that remix below, as well as the video for ‘Moon’, a single release from Biophilia.

The first in the eight-part series of Biophilia remixes will be released on One Little Indian on 16 April.

Biophilia is available now.
