    Björk's "Crystalline" Video by Michel Gondry Premieres; 12" Vinyl Series Launches

    Björk continues to unveil Biophilia, her most interdisciplinary project to date, with today’s premiere on YouTube of the music video for the song "Crystalline" from groundbreaking director and longtime Björk collaborator Michel Gondry. "We love it when Björk and Michel Gondry combine their brain power," says the Huffington Post. "It just feels so... right." Watch the video below. The "Crystalline" single is available now on the iTunes Store, as are "Cosmogony" and the Biophilia App.

    Also available today in the Nonesuch Store is the first of four imported 12" vinyl releases (pictured at left), all part of The Crystalline Series featuring variations on music from Biophilia. The first 12" includes the "Crystalline" and "Cosmogony" singles mixed by Grammy Award–winning engineer Serban Ghenea. The three upcoming releases in the series, now available for pre-order, include mixes of "Crystalline" and "Cosmogony" by Matthew Herbert and versions of three songs from Omar Souleyman.

    Also available for pre-order in the Nonesuch Store is the full Biophilia album, which will be released on September 27, 2011, through One Little Indian / Nonesuch Records, in five different physical versions: on CD in distinct jewel-case and digipak versions; on vinyl; and on two custom-made editions—the Biophilia Manual, which presents the music on CD in a 48-page cloth-bound, thread-sewn hardback book, and the Ultimate Edition, which includes the Manual along with 10 tuning forks, each representing the tone of a track on the album. Both custom-made pieces will be available to pre-order for a limited time only. For additional details and to order now, visit nonesuch.com/store/bjork.

    Biophilia is a multimedia project, comprising a studio album, an app, 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 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.
