BjörkEl 7 de mayo sale a la venta el nuevo disco de Björk titulado “Volta”. Ofreció una entrevista para pitchforkmedia y esto es parte de ella:

This one, it was different because I knew more emotionally what I wanted. And because I’d done two or three projects in a row that were quite serious, maybe I just needed to get that out of my system or something. So all I wanted to do for this album was just to have fun and do something that was full-bodied and really up.

I actually did the whole album, and it wasn’t until the last two or three months where the only jigsaw that hadn’t been solved was the rhythms. We had done a lot of experiments with rhythms but I just threw them all away because it was like every time we did something really clever with drum programming beats, it was just too pretentious for this album, it just didn’t stick.

For some reason, for me it was maybe a little bit nostalgic going back to 1992, where you had really simple 808 and 909 really lo-fi drum machines, not doing anything fancy but really basic, almost like rave stuff or trance stuff, and then really, really acoustic drums. So there are a couple of tracks on this album which are actually programs, with many programming hours spent, and you listen to it, and it sounds like kettle drums or something.

Además ya presentó la primera parte de su gira mundial que comenzará en Nueva York. Los boletos para su concierto en el Coachella Music Festival están agotados, eso augura una gran demanda en los eventos siguientes.
