    "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 , björk"



    biophilia is new release date is October 10th, october 11th for north america.

    Thank god. I hope they pump some power into the album. What I've heard has been snoozeville. I'm one of her biggest fans but they definitely need to give this album more heart, power, boom, something. It was lacking.

    If she really wanted to have mercy on the world, she would can the album. And then go the hell away.

    Seconded. Can we have a RJ/Survivor style vote?
