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.

UPDATE:

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."
