Consequence of Björk continues: One day after the album track “Cosmology” hit the web, the Icelandic singer-songwriter has revealed the artwork for her forthcoming LP Biophilia. If you couldn’t tell, it’s right above.
That’s not all though; Björk is now accepting pre-orders for Biophilia and, of course, there are a variety of configurations to consider. The album will be available on CD, LP, and digitally. There’s also ‘The Biophilia Manual,’ which is a “48-page, full-color, hardbound, cloth-covered, and thread-sewn book, tipped on lenticular panel to the front cover, with foil-blocked spine and back cover; the music is housed in black uncoated board wallets.”
Wait, you have $800 to spend? Try the ‘Ultimate Edition’…
The Biophilia Ultimate Edition, presented in a lacquered and silkscreened oak-hinged lid case, consists of the Biophilia Manual along with 10 chrome-plated tuning forks, silkscreened on one face in 10 different colors, stamped at the back, and presented in a flocked tray. Each fork is adjusted to the tone of a Biophilia track, covering a complete octave in a non-conventional scale. It will be made to order and fabricated only once; each case comes with an individual numbered certificate.
Pre-order your preference at Nonesuch Records’ webstore. The album is due for release on September 27th.
Also, the aforementioned “Cosmogony” and the Biophilia ‘mother app’ are now available for purchase on iTunes. Hopefully you have a lot of money saved up.
I don't even care if she's not on the cover, I am now officially in countdown mode. Which version did you pre-order, ONTD?
