Bjork reveals new album details

'Volta' due out in May

Bjork has released details of her forthcoming album.

The Icelandic chanteuse's sixth studio album is entitled 'Volta' and is due out May 7. It will feature 10 tracks, written and produced by Bjork.

Bjork recruited several notable collaborators to work on the album, including super-producer Timbaland and Antony Hegarty of Antony & the Johnsons.

She also brought in acclaimed African artists Toumani Diabate and Konono No 1 (who won BBC's World Music Award last year), as well as a 10-piece brass section composed of female Icelandic musicians, and Min Xiao-Fen to play the pipa (a Chinese stringed instrument).

As previously announced, Bjork will headline several festivals later this year, including California's Coachella Festival on April 27, and the Glastonbury Festival on June 7.

There wasn't another Bjork thread?

I was excited to finally see her live, but now I see it would cost me upwards of $140 (plus the travel to and from New York or Chicago).

This is very upsetting.

first initial reaction is that the knife is going to sue somebody.

second is that the timbaland produced song is hardly going to revive her career like it did for nelly furtado's.

other than that, a mother fucking brilliant song. the video is probably going to future a lot of scenes with björk stumbling through woods and shit.

I am definitely enjoying this.  I didn't really know what direction Bjork was going to take after her recent releases, but this is a pretty welcome approach.  I really like that it isn't an overly Timabaland song, which usually happens when he produces something.  I attribute that to the other artist just forfeiting the table to him.

apparently timbaland didn't produce this (or any other songs on the record).  he worked with her and came up with some beats that she proceeded to bjork with them for over a year.  there was an interview at pitchfork, but i can't seem to find it now.

All it took was typing in 'Bjork' at the pitchforkmedia site:
