Volta is Bjork’s sixth studio album, and her first since 2004’s Medulla. Entirely written and produced by Bjork, the new disc features ten new tracks from one of the most dizzyingly experimental and creative artists of the last two decades. What other musician could, and would, collaborate with a cast as eclectic as vocalist Antony of Antony and the Johnsons, beatmaker/producer Timbaland, electronic pioneer Mark Bell, Malian kora player Toumani Diabate, and Congo experimental band Konono No. 1? As well, a 10-piece female brass section of Icelandic musicians play on three tracks, and Chinese pip expert Min Xiao-Fen plays on one.

Known as much for her exciting, boundary-pushing visuals—live and on video—Bjork is one of the most acclaimed artists of our time. From her beginnings as a child vocalist to teen years spent fronting a punk band to her stint as vocalist for Icelandic pop group the Sugarcubes, Bjork has emerged as one of the most singular talents of this generation. Her expressive vocal range, her interest in all kinds of music, from pop to alternative to jazz to ambient electronic, folk, and classical, not to mention her visual sense, have made her impossible to pigeonhole. She has been nominated for 12 Grammys and an Academy Award, and has sold over 15 million albums worldwide. With Bjork, every album, every single, every video, and every performance is an event.
