Medulla Schmulla

By liz

Well, news of a new BJORK record is bound to make someone happy. The album, titled 'Medulla', will be stocked onto your local record store shelves on August 31 courtesy of Elektra. As always Bjork worked with a wide variety of artists on this one from Matmos to Rahzel from The Roots to Mike Patton (formerly of Faith No More). (Damn... I wanted to hear more from Matthew Herbert.)

In a recent interview with W Magazine, Bjork leads us on a bit of a goose chase trying to figure out what the new record will sound like... "I just got really bored with instruments. I started doing everything with my voice. Then suddenly I didn't want to work with any musicians, which is a bit weird. I only wanted to work with vocalists." ... "I wanted the record to be like muscle, blood, flesh," she says, pumping her fist. "We could be in a cave somewhere and one person would start singing, and another person would sing a beat and then the next person sing a melody, and you could just kind of be really happy in your cave."

Hmm... an album sung in a cave with no instruments named after bone marrow, how... Bjork.
