being the same

Is she the same person as the 11-year-old Björk or the 21-year-old who recorded Birthday, or has she shed those skins ?

A bit of both. Also, because I’m a singer, from album to album it’s always the same voice. If I was an instrumental musician it might be different ; I might cling more to my noises. But you’re always going to be able to tell I’m a female from Iceland and that English is my second language and maybe guess my age ; there’s already so much luggage there. Maybe that makes me a bit - not braver, but making it a necessity to change.
