    Grammy Award Winner: Best Recording Package

     

    Biophilia is an interdisciplinary exploration of the universe and its physical forces—particularly those where music, nature, and technology meet—inspired by these relationships between musical structures and natural phenomena, from the atomic to the cosmic. The Independent on Sunday calls it "brilliantly original and ambitious." The BBC raves: "An amazing, inventive and wholly unique eighth album from an artist without peer." NPR calls it "astounding."
