Björk - Interview album FLAC
We recommend you soundtrack this interview with our playlist of the best Björk songs. Released in January, her latest album, ‘Vulnicura’, is intricate and beautiful and tough: a bloodstained-lace valentine that describes her break-up with visual artist and long-term partner Matthew Barney in 2013. But – as she pours me some coffee in her publicist’s office in New York and we start talking about her topping the bill at Wilderness festival this summer – there’s little trace of that melancholy. Your 2011 album ‘Biophilia’ was released alongside a series of iPad apps. Can you imagine doing another album that’s multiplatform? ‘I can see that happening. I’m just not sure what it is yet.
In a recent interview, Björk called Utopia my Tinder album. Yes, because I thought that was hilarious, but obviously I would never be able to be on Tinder. Björk first used it in 1998 and fully embraced it on 2001’s Vespertine, enthusing about laptop production and designing the album to sound good on digital download through computer speakers. Reactable and Tenori-on Björk was the first musician to adopt the Reactable – an electronic musical instrument in which glowing tangibles are moved around a lit-up table to create different textures and rhythms – for her 2007 Volta tour, as well as the Tenori-on, a sequencer which makes LED patterns into sound patterns.
This is the accompanying interview. 25 years ago today, Björk released 'Debut. Anticipating greatness, we put her on the cover of our May 1993 issue. This is the accompanying interview. by Thorsteinn Gunnarsson.
Interview (stylized ĭn′terview) is the eighth album by British progressive rock band Gentle Giant. The album was released in 1976. It is a concept album conceived as a radio interview. Three of the tracks integrate brief "interview" sections which were staged in the studio. The title song has lyrics derived from the type of question and answer dialogue they had encountered while talking to the music press. This album was critically and commercially less successful than their previous album Free Hand.
Björk’s darkly formidable 2015 album, Vulnicura, reflected the breakup of her decade-long relationship with the artist Matthew Barney in songs of nearly paralyzing pain and simmering anger, weighted with dissonant, dramatic strings. But her new album, Utopia, prizes airiness: the breath that powers voices and flutes; the atmosphere where birds fly; structures and tempos that change freely rather than being locked to a beat. The album, due on Nov. 24, is the latest iteration of Björk’s career-long fascination with how nature and technology can interact
AnOther Magazine: Maybe we could begin by talking about characters? Björk: When I’m on stage, I’m tapping into something that everybody is. The Vulnicura album cover shows the emotional cold nights that I was at when I wrote the album, but it’s the cold nights that anybody could have at times in their life. So it’s more like a Tarot card, or symbolic for that state of mind. Julia Davis: Yeah, but it is also truthful about you.
Björk Guðmundsdóttir is DJing at Barcelona’s Fira Montjuïc, and the room is sweating. She’s playing a special four-hour set to open Sónar Festival, and over the course of the night the music has been oscillating between aggressive and sensual sounds – a neck-snapping polyrhythm might mutate into a Rihanna vocal, a guttural bassline into ecstatic R&B. The crowd, a mixture of both 20-something clubbers and older fans, are transfixed as they watch. the Icelandic pop icon make her selections from a stage made to resemble a hothouse, densely packed with potted plants.
Björk’s new album Utopia is threaded with samples of recordings by English author and sonic experimenter David Toop. How did Hekura come together?
