Björk and Thom Yorke Will Release a Song to Promote Protecting Iceland's Environment


By: Spacelab Research Staff

Björk and Thom Yorke have collaborated on a new single to benefit the environment in Iceland. Thom has provided backing vocals for Bjork's song Nattura, and the song is a rallying cry to take back Iceland's natural resources and wilderness.


A post from a French Bjork fan site reads ""Nattura" (which features Thom Yorke from Radiohead on backing vocals) highlights a grass roots movement in Iceland to reclaim the country’s natural ressources and wildeness from the hands of big business and polution. But Nattura is more of a protest and rallying cry rather than a lecture."


Pitchfork is reporting that the song will be released on October 20th via One Little Indian.


"when i said that icelands image was important for icelanders who are working abroad, i was not thinking about myself or sigur rós. i´m not worried about us. i have in mind all the other export goods such as skyr, water, fish, bio lamb meat, tourism, geothermal experience ; even our president, the honourable ólafur ragnar grímsson, has started giving lectures abroad about icelands green energy. and not to mention what could happen if we do manage to stay green," wrote Björk in a missive of the Nattura site, an organization pushing for the environmental movement in Iceland.
