Bjork's new album has hit the App Store (as you'll remember, the album is kind of like ten individual iOS apps), and is available to download for free. The app, Bjork: Biophilia, comes with one track and app built-in. The remaining tracks and applications will eventually be available to purchase in-app, for $1.99 each. As outlined in the app's release notes:
Biophilia is an extraordinary and innovative multimedia exploration of music, nature and technology by the musician Björk. Comprising a suite of original music and interactive, educational artworks and musical artifacts, Biophilia is released as ten in-app experiences that are accessed as you fly through a three-dimensional galaxy that accompanies the album’s theme song Cosmogony. All of the album’s songs gradually become available inside Biophilia as interactive experiences, beginning with the first single Crystalline.Access to the remaining tracks will be made available as soon as they are released. If you're a Bjork fan, take a look at the application. Currently, Bjork: Biophilia is available to download for free, and Crystalline can be purchased in-app for $1.99. And if you do take the app for a spin, be sure to post your thoughts in the comments.
