In 2013, Bjork released her heightened, futuristic album Biophilia as an app. That album's follow-up, Vulnicura, leaked months ahead of schedule earlier this year, and Bjork already has some innovative plans for it. In a recent interview with Fast Company, the musician talked about her decision to keep Vulnicura off Spotify, her upcoming retrospective at MoMA, and the music video for her song "Stonemilker." The video, directed by Bjork's longtime collaborator Andrew Thomas Huang, will be available for Oculus Rift.
Apps are punk, Oculus Rift is not
When asked about how she chooses to pair technology and music, Bjork said, "It can’t just be working with the gadget for the sake of the gadget. But also it’s about budgets. You can do apps cheaply. Apps was kind of punk, actually. It was like starting a punk band again. Filming for Oculus Rift is not."
There's no word yet when the "Stonemilker" video will be released or what it will look like. Bjork's MoMA retrospective will open on March 8th.
