More Details on Bjork's "Volta"

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.

There will be 10 tracks in the album that is due May 8 via Atlantic Records and while it still keeps her trademark of using lots of instruments in her music, this time Bjork adds more human vocal to the contemplative songs. 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".
