In celebration of Bjork's mid-career retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the release of the Bjork: Archives book, One Little Independent is reissuing the Bjork vinyl back catalogue, and for an exclusive period the vinyl will be colored to the hue that personifies that album character. Homogenic's character is equilibrium synchronizing opposites pacifist solutions pedagogic uniting choir copper electric blue galaxies atom no human scale cosmic nature/technology not narrative blue and orange.

The album title, Biophilia, refers to a love of all living things, and in every aspect of this game-changing multi-media effort, Björk brilliantly connects nature, music, and technology. At the core of this groundbreaking project, of course, are Björk's sonically brilliant and emotionally stirring songs, akin to the magical, otherworldly, atavistic hymns of her acclaimed 2001 disc, Vespertine. On Vespertine, Björk rhapsodized about a new romance; here, she attempts nothing less than to retell the story of the creation of the universe in her own compellingly idiosyncratic voice.

Bjork has revealed that Biophilia has been partly composed on iPad. She does not play conventional instruments, this way of composing appeals to her. New musical instruments were specially developed for the album, and specially for the shows at the Manchester International Festival that took place in mid-2011 to introduce the album. The 'gameleste' is a mixture between a gamelan and a celesta which was programmed in order to be played remotely by an iPad. "Crystalline," the lead single from the album, is mostly electronic and features a continuous 'gameleste' base with electronic beats and rhythms.

"What I always wanted to do was to reconnect musicology with nature," Icelandic composer and performer Björk recently told the New York Times. "I always wanted to make bass lines behave like gravity."

"Brilliantly original and ambitious." -The Independent
