Published Mar 18, 2011We're starting to make headway on Björk's upcoming Biophilia album. A couple of months back, the Icelandic singer premiered a new track from the project via space-themed iPad app Solar System. At the time, it was unclear exactly what Biophilia was, but it looked as if it was a full-length record. It turns out our instincts were right, but we didn't expect the project to be this iPad-friendly.
NME reports that the new record, Björk's ninth, was partly recorded on the Apple tablet and is set to be released through a series of apps. A press release further explains that Biophilia is a "multimedia project encompassing music, apps, Internet, installations and live shows."
At present, it's unclear whether or not the performer will release the recordings in the traditional physical mediums (CD, vinyl) or even as a traditionally packaged digital download. Furthermore, neither a tracklisting nor a release date has yet to pop up for this bad boy.
This isn't the only Björk release scheduled for this year. The songstress is also set to release a collaboration with Syrian singer Omar Souleyman.
In the meantime, Björk will be performing a selection of Biophilia tunes at some upcoming gigs in Manchester.
