Ambitious? Original? Crazy? For her fifth studio album, Medula, Iceland's Björk has constructed her record entirely from human voices, more to the point, her voice. “Well, there was just one gong on it,” she admits on XFM. “The whole album is quite physical and especially as it’s just the human voice I thought it’d be fitting to get to the core of things. Everything’s stripped back and I’ll occasionally listen to that kind of thing in my house. I just wanted it to be pure and naked, like when you get a craving for tequila straight up. It’s that sort of an album.”
Sadly for her fans, Björk explained she probably won’t be touring this album. However, the positive side of this is that it won’t be long until she releases yet more new material. “I’d like to do another album first,” she considers. “It may or may not be another vocal album, I haven’t decided. Then I’ll probably tour both albums together. I’ve got maybe fifty albums in my head, and if I’m lucky I may get to make ten of them – there has to be a balance. I can’t see myself making any more films though, because I’d rather spend all my time on music and if I start having an affair I won’t be loyal to anything and it will become all wishy-washy.
She also revealed an unlikely offer to move into the ultra-commercial Hollywood. “I was actually offered the chance to be one of Charlie’s Angels, but I turned it down. I think you should find your lot and try to do it really well.“ Unofficially called the "Britney Principle", will someone get this message to Mick Jagger, Madonna, Jewel, Jack White and the many other wannabe thespians out there.
