Biophilia gets tracklisting and album cover

22.08.11

Bjork’s ‘Biophilia’ album project has been unconventional to say the least – featuring Tesla coils and really big pendulums, presented as an iPad app as well as a CD, incorporating an educational roadshow – but she has chosen to incorporate one rather tiresome ritual of the modern “event” record release: the drip-feed of information. Here’s the latest scraps, the album cover below and the tracklisting, which were revealed over the course of a week, in such a no-way-cynical manner as to keep the album resolutely splashed through RSS feeds the world over. Anyway – here’s the cover, and the tracklist below.
