Bjork Talks Timba
Bjork has spoken to MTV about her new album and collaborating with Timbaland
Bjork has finally spilt the beans on her new album, and she says her experiences in the Aceh Province, which was hard hit by the 2005 Tsunami lie behind a lot of the songs.
The days she spent in a village where "180,000 had died, in one moment," inspired the powerful lyrics of what will become the first single 'Earth Intruders.'
"I am like many people, [in that I'm] quite upset about how things are in the world now. I want to maybe be a spokesperson for the people in the street. Emotionally, I'm just really, really hungry for something quite full-bloodied and visceral."
She also spoke about her experiences working on four songs with producer of the moment, Timbaland.
Though she remained tight lipped about which of the four songs she'll be including on 'Volta', she wanted to make it quite clear that it wasn't just his name she was after.
"It was a mutual admiration thing going on," she said. "It wasn't like I was desperate for the hottest producer, I just thought for a long time that we might be really, really different. I was up for a bit of action in my music."
Volta will be hitting the shops on May 7th, and also includes an intriguing duet with Antony Hegarty from Antony & the Johnsons.
