Björk explique le retard de Biophilia

Après le retard annoncé en début de mois, Björk s’explique sur la sortie plus tardive de Biophilia dans un communiqué officiel.

Suite la résidence à Manchester, Biophilia semble en effet avoir évolué. Björk a donc décidé d’apporter quelques retouches de dernière minute à l’album. Elle précise notamment l’utilisation d’un enregistrement live pour un des titres de l’album sans préciser lequel.

Pour finir, sa collaboratrice de longue date, Leila Arab se joint également à l’album. Elle aurait contribué aux derniers ajustements en compagnie de Mandy Parnell.

Voici les explications complète avec le communiqué en anglais :

dear folks

i would like to explain why my album is coming out later than was first intended

after humongous and fun adventurous work with the app builders we handed in the music for the app box last may i felt sonically it fitted that underworld of apps and virtual reality like a glove , kinda acoustic and clean with a slick dark sub but somehow the cd needed more blood and muscles , oxygen and stuff

i felt the album had different kinda growth potential than the app box and it is important to follow those hunches even though they are slippery and you don’t know sometimes where they are taking you

i played biophilia for few weeks in manchester and some of the songs grew while playing them live and i decided to add some of this into the album , i ended up even using a live recording of one of the songs on the album . take my hunch the whole distance but in order to do that i had to put the album back a bit

my friend , the incredibly talented music maker leila arab came to iceland with no notice and added some sonic sculpting , especially to the bottom end and the great talented mastering engineer mandy parnell came over as well and helped me give the whole thing more warmth and flesh somehow

i am really happy i did this , seems like biophilia the album has a body

leila also introduced me to "current value" who now has put a new beat into one of the songs

hope you like it

warmth , bjork


biophilia is now released on october 10th
(october 11th north america)
