I Don't Like Cities, But I Like Björk*

*Allusion to Madonna's lyric-writing wonder: "I don't like cities, but I like New York."

Björk's newest album, Volta, is set to come out on May 7th. It's said to be quite different than her last album, Medúlla, which for most, was really hard to swallow. It featured a strong focus on the voice (including both a capella and tape overs), and perhaps more notably, a lack of the lush instrumentation she is known for. I saw her live on her Medúlla tour, and it was the most psychedelic concert I have ever attended except for a Freshman Department Recital a few years back.

Vulta, however, is said to be quite different and will feature outside musicians including Timbaland. But, from the looks of this album cover, it reminds me more of her "I Miss You" video than anything else...

I recently heard a story about her in the studio, talking to her producer about the song, saying "This is triangles. I need it to be more squares, and then some circles."

PS, have you seen If I told you yet?

Hey - how are you?!?!

I'm a total Bjork fan, too, btw. I've listened to Bachelorette more times than I care to admit.

I hope all is well for you in Rochester!

Fondly from Boston,
