Bjork remixes the avant-garde, features heavy-hitters on new album
Björk might just have some sort of divine monopoly on all things experimental. At least these days, it feels like everything she touches turns to avant-garde.
An artist known for her grace skating between the avant-garde and pop, it’s only natural that her upcoming album, bastards, is a compilation of remixes of her 2011 album for Ipad, also known as an educational media experiment called Biophilia. The album was the first to come in the form of a series of apps, a project Björk collaborated on with Apple. The culmination of those remixes, bastards will be released on November 19 through One Little Indian Records.
Björk called on some heavy-hitting and lesser-known producers for her remix collection: Matthew Herbert, Hudson Mohawke, Death Grips, Alva Noto, Current Value, 16-bit, These New Puritans, Omar Souleyman, and The Slips. Several of the tracks have been released throughout the last year. bastards will be offered in vinyl, as a cd and as a digital download.
