Meanwhile, Bjork‘s film Biophilia Live is set for release on DVD and Bluray on November 24. Biophilia Live was filmed during the final night of Bjork’s tour at London’s Alexandra Palace in September 2013. It was directed by Berberian Sound Studio director Peter Strickland with Nick Fenton, editor of Arctic Monkeys’ At The Apollo DVD. The release comes with extra footage which was filmed at Japan’s Miraikan Museum during Björk’s residency at the venue.
The singer cancelled her appearance at the premiere of the film earlier this month in order to work on her new album. Organisers of the London Film Festival confirmed that Bjork would appear at its premiere at The Odeon West End on October 9. However, a statement on Björk’s Facebook page said: “We are so sorry, but since Björk is already working on her next album (out in 2015!) she cannot come to the Biophilia Live premiere at the London Film Festival this week. Many sorries, and be well.”
Kanye West producer Arca recently announced that he is to co-produce Björk’s new album, which follows 2011’s ‘Biophilia’.
