Björk's "Mutual Core" Video to Be Show in Times Square in NYC Every Night in March As Part of Midnight Moment
Björk’s music video for "Mutual Core," from her album Biophilia, directed by Andrew Thomas Huang for MOCAtv, will be shown every night in March as part of a synchronized program on over 15 of the largest digital signs in Times Square. Björk’s work will premiere three minutes before midnight tonight, March 1, and play throughout the month as part of the Midnight Moment, a presentation of the Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts. "I am very excited about my 'Mutual Core' video being shown at Times Square," says Björk. "Seems like them united screens there are going to have a go at matching the energy of the volcanoes in the video! Good luck Manhattan!"
About this Album
"Crystalline" is the first single off Björk's forthcoming Biophilia project. The Washington Post says it's a "sure-footed stunner of a track." New York magazine calls it "classic Björk." The Village Voice describes it as "gorgeous, hypnotic." Prefix says: "Certainly puts anticipation for Biophilia as high as it can be." Pitchfork calls it "a wonderfully confounding teaser for Biophilia, leaving the possible worlds it explores wide open to suggestion."
Biophilia, Björk's most ambitious and interdisciplinary project to date, comprises a studio album, apps, a new website, custom-made musical instruments, live shows, and educational workshops. Björk has collaborated with app developers, scientists, writers, inventors, musicians and instrument makers to create a unique multi-media exploration of the universe and its physical forces—particularly those where music, nature, and technology meet. The project is inspired by and explores these relationships between musical structures and natural phenomena, from the atomic to the cosmic.
“Crystalline” is its lead single, with Biophilia Apps coming from One Little Indian / Nonesuch Records.
This single is available from Nonesuch in the United States and Canada only.
