Bjork to release Biophilia remix album

Bjork to release Biophilia remix album

Bjork is set to release bastards, an album featuring remixed versions of songs from her most recent LP, Biophilia.

bastards will come out on November 19 on her label One Little Indian and includes reworkings of Biophilia tracks by Death Grips, Hudson Mohawke, These New Puritans, Omar Souleyman and more. The remixes were previously released as part of an eight-part series.

Of the remix album, Bjork says: "I felt it important to gather together the essence of the remixes, so I picked a quarter of them for one CD for people who are perhaps not too sassy downloaders or don't have the time or energy to partake in the hunter-gathering rituals of the internet."

She continued: "I was incredibly impressed by how the core of the mixes took Biophilia somewhere else while still keeping its character, and like they so often do when at their best: the remixes gave the songs more beats; legs to dance on! I spent some time editing together not necessarily the best ones but the ones that made the strongest whole."

The bastards tracklisting is:

'Crystalline' (Omar Souleyman Remix)
'Virus' (Hudson Mohawke “Peaches and Guacamol” Rework)
'Sacrifice' (Death Grips Remix)
