Via Pitchfork Media: “Bjork has revealed the title and release date for her sixth full-length proper and follow-up to 2004’s a cappella experiment Medúlla. Volta was written and produced entirely by Björk, according to her website. The ever-inventive songstress debuts the new record at a bunch of festivals this spring and summer, including Coachella, Sasquatch!, and Glastonbury. Volta includes 10 new songs and graces the earth May 7 via One Little Indian/Atlantic.”

Thanks Pitchfork. Interesting news, and I have to admit, I am more than a little curious to hear this new album, as Medulla, while interesting, did not really grab me like I had hoped it would. I may need to revisit it. In the meantime, listen to “Human Behaviour,” the poly-rhythmic first single off Bjork’s, post Sugarcubes, album Debut. Be sure to relive the 1993 video too…one the best of it’s era.

  1. I totally agree about Medulla. I feel like that album might have been a couple of years ahead of its time, and it might grab me now. In addition to “Human Behaviour” (which is an amazing album), Homogenic is the album where Bjork really spread her wings. If you don’t have time to check out the whole album, Joga and Bachelorette are the “must hear tracks.

    I can’t wait for Volta!

  2. About a week ago I got a call from a survey company asking about tourism and Iceland. The woman asked me to name five things that I knew about Iceland.
    I said, “Bjork”.
    She said, “What?”.
    I said, “Bjork. She’s from Iceland, right?”
    She said, “I don’t understand”
    I said, “Bjork, the singer from the Sugercubes. They’re from Iceland.”
    Then she hung up and I went back to smoking my bowl.

  3. hi…
