Björk announces a very
special DVD/CD/VINYL recording, Voltaic, to be released in the U.S. by
Nonesuch Records on June 23, 2009. Available in five different physical
configurations, Voltaic is an overview of the past two years of Björk’s Volta activities-her sixth studio album,
which came out in 2007, and the subsequent two-year world tour.

 

 

Voltaic DVD 1 contains filmed
highlights from the Volta tour, recorded in Paris
and Reykjavik, with performances of songs from Volta as well as tracks from previous albums
including Hunter, Joga, Army of Me, and Hyperballad.

 

 

Björk’s band on
the Volta tour included Mark Bell (LFO)
on computers and keyboards and Damian Taylor on keyboards and programming.
Drums and percussion were played by Chris Corsano (Sonic Youth, etc.); Jónas
Sen played piano, harpsichord, and church organ; and Björk’s all female
Icelandic 10-piece brass section rounded out the group.

 

 

Voltaic DVD 2 features all of
the Volta music videos, including the
“Declare Independence” clip directed by celebrated Oscar winning French
director Michel Gondry; the “Wanderlust” video directed by encyclopedia
pictura; and the “Earth Intruders” video directed by renowned French animator
Michel Ocelot.

 

 

Voltaic CD 1 is a selection of
songs from the Volta tour recorded live at the legendary Olympic Studios
in London, just
before Björk’s headlining show at the Glastonbury Festival in 2007. It was
recorded in one afternoon, and the whole set was played live and captured in
one take before being produced and mixed by Björk.

 

 

Voltaic CD 2 features key
remixes from Volta, with versions of “Earth Intruders,” “Declare
Independence,” “Innocence,” “Wanderlust,” and “Dull Flame of Desire,” by the
likes of Simian Mobile Disco, Matthew Herbert, Graeme Sinden, Ghostigital, and
Modeselektor.
