The physical version of the app-based album is set for a September 27 release
Bjork has tweeted the cover art for her forthcoming ‘Biophilia’ album, which you can see above.
While ‘Biophilia App’ is available from iTunes now, the physical release of the album, through One Little Indian, will be on September 27.
The latest single from the album was made available to download last week. ‘Virus’ has been released as a single and as a special feature of the ‘Biophilia App’ for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, available on iTunes.
The official explanation of the app describes the content as featuring:
A large cell surrounded by others floating on screen. Small viruses appear, latch on to the cell, and inject their DNA. The strands amass and penetrate the large cell’s nucleus, then the viruses replicate. The song is complete once the cell is destroyed.
Bjork says the inspiration for the song came from a throat infection. ‘Virus’ was created by Bjork in collaboration with interactive artist and app developer Scott Snibbe.
Bjork recently unveiled the Ultimate Box Set for ‘Biophilia’, with a price tag of £500.
