Published Oct 08, 2012Ever since she released her 2011 app/album experiment Biophilia, Icelandic pop auteur Björk has continued to enlist fascinating artists to remix her work. Now, a portion of the batch will be available on one compilation album.
The release is called bastards, and collects 13 of the best Biophilia reworks, including work from Matthew Herbert, Death Grips, Alva Noto, Omar Souleyman, Hudson Mohawke and others.
In a press release, Björk explained, "I felt it important to gather together the essence of the remixes so I picked a quarter of them for one cd for people who are perhaps not too sassy downloaders or don't have the time or energy to partake in the hunter-gathering rituals of the internet."
The artist continued, explaining that it's not necessarily a best-of compilation but more of an album. "I spent some time editing together not necessarily the best ones but the ones that made the strongest whole."
bastards will be available on vinyl, CD and as a digital download on November 19 via One Little Indian. The tracklisting is available below along with 16-bit's remix of "Hollow."
