Björk Premieres Matthew Herbert Remixes From ‘Biophilia’
Eclectic singer Björk has commissioned a series of remixes from her latest album, 'Biophilia.' Current Value already released a reworked version of 'Crystalline' earlier this year. Fans can now listen to three 'Biophilia' tracks remixed by British electronic music artist Matthew Herbert.
Rolling Stone has premiered the new versions of 'Mutual Core,' 'Sacrifice,' and 'Virus.' Herbert's remixes of the tracks somehow manage to make the dramatic Björk songs even more epic. 'Mutual Core' goes from its original tectonic plates origins and morphs into subtle keys and erratic beeps and builds into distorted vocals and hints of dubstep-like sounds.
"I have been really spoilt through the years with the amount of interest Matthew Herbert has shown my music and the amount of times he has been up for doing remixes," Björk told Rolling Stone. "He has taken it full on and made it into his version but still true to the heart of the song and, more than once, improved it."
The Matthew Herbert remixes of Björk will be released on June 25. It makes up the 8-part remix series Björk is releasing for 'Biophilia.' The Icelandic native just hit the road for a string of music festival appearances. She was forced to cancel a few shows recently due to vocal issues.
