[b]Bjork[/b] and [b]Dirty Projectors[/b] have announced details of their forthcoming EP.

Recorded at the [b]Rare Book Room[/b] in [b]Brooklyn[/b] with [b]Nicolas Vernhes[/b], all proceeds from the release will go to help marine conservation.

He added: “We’re working with the [b]National Geographic Society[/b] to create areas of sustainability, so the oceans don’t end up like a giant poisonous corpse hugging the continents.”

Available exclusively via Topspin.net, pre-orders for [b]’Mount Wittenberg Orca'[/b] are being taken with donations starting at $7.
