April 03, 2007 03:23:14 GMT

More details have been revealed in Bjork's upcoming album "Volta" including the list of tracks, the album's artwork and the first single release.

She pours her 'aggressiveness' in songs like "Earth Intruders," "Vertebrae by Vertebrae" and "Declare Independence", in the sense that they feature her high pitch tunes. Some of the songs are on the other hand, 'milder' like the self-explanatory "Hope", love song "Dull Flame of Desire" and also motherhood telling "My Juvenile".

Anticipation running up and down over U2's new album has reached a new progress. Speaking on behalf of the band, The Edge hinted that they are working on several more songs and that great stuffs are coming in the way.

"We're working on new songs and getting lost in the music. I don't think we're going to try and think too much about what we're going to do with it yet, we're just going to do a lot of writing and just see what gives. We're giving ourselves the luxury of just working on the songs," said Edge as quoted by Rolling Stone. It was previously reported that the band was going to work on the old songs that didn't make it to "How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb" (2004).
