Bjork

This remix appears on Bjork's latest UK single "Triumph of a Heart" and sounds quite different from the intricate vocal layers of the Medulla album. In fact, this track has an almost Gospel feel to it, complete with soulful choir, tinkly piano, and church organ. Here, our Bjork is dipping her little icelandic toes into noir-ish Nick Cave waters. It's unlike anything else in her entire catalog of music, and is terrifically effective. I can't fathom that this is mixed by the same Gonzales most famous for electro-sexing it up with Peaches, it's so subtle and organic. The track is sung in Icelandic, of course, but here's the translation:
"Vigil"
my farm
my farm and yours
sleeps happily at peace
falls snow
silent at dusk on earth
my grass
my grass and yours
keeps the earth till spring
nesting spring
hid at the hill's root
awake as are we
faith in life
quiet cold spring
eye of the depths
into the firmament
staring still in the night
far away
wakes the great world
mad with grim enchantment
disquieted
fearful of night
and day
your eyes
fearless and serene
smile bright at me
my hope
your blest smile
rouses verse from sleep
the earths rests
silent in arms of snowlily white
closes her blue eyes
my little girl
