By: Spacelab Research Staff Bjork will hit the U.S. in May, and the U.S. will love every minute of it. Just a guess, mind you, but the woman can't do a thing anymore without everyone staring slackjawed as she weaves her way through our existence, descending from Mount Olympus, and OK, maybe the metaphor is starting to be stretched too far.
But you can check her out at any number of the dates below. She's touring in support of the upcoming Volta, due out on May 7th on One Little Indian / Atlantic.
There's a whole host of appearances from a wide range of people, including Antony (Antony And The Johnsons), Timbaland, Mark Bell (LFO), improv drummer Chris Corsano, Min Xiao-Fen on the Chinese pipa, a 10-piece brass section of women from Iceland, and Brian Chippendale (Lightening Bolt). Africa also represents with Malian kora player Toumani Diabate, and Konono No1 from the Congo.
And if you put your ear to the ground right now and listen, you will hear that more tour dates will be announced... and album news as well... and an album to come... all exciting.
