OMFG! IM sooo happy!! cant wait! but im kinda worried about bringing Timbaland on this album... :/ but im trusting Björk :) lol. anyone els as excited as me?PR: Featuring ten new and original tracks, ***8216;Volta***8217; is written and produced by Björk, with three tracks co-produced with Timbaland and Mark Bell.
In the role of producer Björk has brought in various other musicians to work on her songs and ***8216;Volta***8217; features some of her most interesting collaborations so far with Antony Hegarty (Antony And The Johnsons) singing on two tracks, and Timbaland (Jay-Z, Missy Elliot etc) working with Björk on beats that she created for three further songs.
Other artists that feature on ***8216;Volta***8217; include electronic pioneer Mark Bell of LFO and two unique drummers ***8211; Chris Corsano (the improvisational drummer who has worked with Sonic Youth amongst others) and Brian Chippendale from Lightening Bolt.
Björk also brought in two acclaimed African artists for ***8216;Volta***8217; - Toumani Diabate, the Malian kora player and Konono No1 the experimental band from The Congo who won a BBC World Music Award in 2006. She has also put together her own 10 piece female brass section of Icelandic musicians who play on three further tracks. Meanwhile Chinese pipa expert Min Xiao-Fen plays on one song."
