Bjork-o-philes, open your ears. The latest track off the Icelandic songstress's next album, Biophilia has arrived.
"Virus," which consists of simple, yearning vocals against a tinkly, rhythmic backdrop, follows "Crystalline" and "Cosmogony." Like those songs, and all others on the album, an app accompanying "Virus" will soon be available. The app for "Cosmogony" featured a 3D interactive map of the galaxy.
According to Pitchfork, "Virus" is expected to offer an interactive game that will let users play around with viruses and diseased cells, as their actions trigger the corresponding sounds of a celeste/gamelan mix.
Biophilia is set for release on September 27.
