  • 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.
