Bjork is set to release 'bastards', an album featuring remixed versions of songs from her most recent LP, 'Biophilia'.

'bastards' will come out on November 19 on her label One Little Indian and includes reworkings of 'Biophilia' tracks by Death Grips, Hudson Mohawke, These New Puritans, Omar Souleyman and more. The remixes were previously released as part of an eight-part series.

Of the remix album, Bjork says: "I felt it important to gather together the essence of the remixes, so I picked a quarter of them for one CD for people who are perhaps not too sassy downloaders or don't have the time or energy to partake in the hunter-gathering rituals of the internet."

She continued: "I was incredibly impressed by how the core of the mixes took 'Biophilia' somewhere else while still keeping its character, and like they so often do when at their best: the remixes gave the songs more beats; legs to dance on! I spent some time editing together not necessarily the best ones but the ones that made the strongest whole."

The 'bastards' tracklisting is:

'Crystalline' (Omar Souleyman Remix)
'Virus' (Hudson Mohawke “Peaches and Guacamol” Rework)
'Sacrifice' (Death Grips Remix)
'Sacrifice' ((Matthew Herbert’s Pins And Needles Mix) edit)
'Mutual Core' (These New Puritans Remix featuring Soloman Is. Song)
'Hollow' (16-bit Remix)
'Mutual Core' (Matthew Herbert’s “Teutonic Plates” Mix)
'Thunderbolt' (Death Grips Remix)
'Dark Matter' (Alva Noto Remodel)
'Thunderbolt' (Omar Souleyman Remix)
'Solstice' (Current Value Remix)
'Moon' (The Slips Remix)
'Crystalline' (Matthew Herbert Remix)
