Hey - nothing wrong with wanting it to be the best it can!

Although Björk was expected to release her new album, Biophilia, on September 27th, the release date has now been pushed back to October 10th, so the singer recently took to her official website to explain delay, and revealed that she wanted to add a little bit more to each of the tracks, so they would feel 'complete!'

She writes:

dear folks

i would like to explain why my album is coming out later than was first intended

after humongous and fun adventurous work with the app builders we handed in the music for the app box last may i felt sonically it fitted that underworld of apps and virtual reality like a glove , kinda acoustic and clean with a slick dark sub but somehow the cd needed more blood and muscles , oxygen and stuff

i felt the album had different kinda growth potential than the app box and it is important to follow those hunches even though they are slippery and you don't know sometimes where they are taking you

i played biophilia for few weeks in manchester and some of the songs grew while playing them live and i decided to add some of this into the album , i ended up even using a live recording of one of the songs on the album . take my hunch the whole distance but in order to do that i had to put the album back a bit

my friend , the incredibly talented music maker leila arab came to iceland with no notice and added some sonic sculpting , especially to the bottom end and the great talented mastering engineer mandy parnell came over as well and helped me give the whole thing more warmth and flesh somehow

i am really happy i did this , seems like biophilia the album has a body

leila also introduced me to "current value" who now has put a new beat into one of the songs

hope you like it

warmth , björk

Excellent!

We're not too disappointed - it's only a slight delay, and if that means that the music will be EXACTLY how she envisions it to be, then we can be patient!

Go with your instincts, gurl!

We've always been a fan of where they've taken you in the past musically!

    thank god! from what i have heard of that album, it needed some seriouse tweaking. now maybe it will sound like music and not the pretentiouse mess it was. it was going to be the first bjork album i wasnt going to buy. i already wasted money on the mess called volta and i didnt want to make the same mistake with this album. course i will play it smart this time and listen to the songs before buying the album. i sure miss old bjork when her music was always good.
