new album, new look?
i always look forward to a new bjork album because swan dress or no swan dress she always delivers something crazy. i guess this is the new artwork for her album (reminds me of the director's label dvds for some reason). i'm excited to see the videos as that's where i think bjork really excels. i wonder if this album will have her tracks with timbaland? i'm interested to hear what that sounds like but i'm not sure where those tracks are going to end up.
i stand corrected, this is the new album artwork according to POWKANG!
"All I wanted to do for this album was just to have fun and do something that was full-bodied and really up," Björk told Stosuy in the first part of their chat. The album cover is meant to evoke pagan femininity and, to some degree, feminism, which is a running theme throughout the music of Volta. "It's not necessarily about me as a woman, but just women," Björk told Stosuy. "Kind of that long leap of 10,000 years back, when they [were] in harmony with nature, and just little things like the fact that there are 13 full moons in a year and most women have certain things happening to them 13 times a year, but Christianity wanted to have 12 months, just to try to put that off."
