"Selmasongs," Björk's soundtrack to "Dancer In The Dark," the award-winning film in which she also stars, is now set for release on September 19.
Songs from the album will be culled entirely from music and dialogue in the film and, according to Björk's spokesperson at Elektra Records, "will be more like a Broadway cast recording than a soundtrack."
"I've Scene It All," a duet between Björk and Radiohead singer Thom Yorke, also will be included on the soundtrack.
Last month, Björk earned Best Actress honors at the Cannes Film Festival for her portrayal of "Selma," a Czech immigrant living in the United States who has a hereditary disease which causes blindness. The musical, which was helmed by "Breaking The Waves" director Lars Von Trier, also won the festival's Palme D'Or for best film (see "Björk Wins Best Actress At Cannes").
"Dancer In The Dark" is scheduled to hit U.S.
theaters in the fall.
In related news, Björk's spokesperson denied rumors that the performer was planning to release a live album culled from two London shows last December with the Brodsky Quartet but confirmed that she is recording her next studio album, due in May, in studios around the world.
Björk has recorded four songs ("April," "Five Years," "Sod Off," and "Joga") with the Brodsky Quartet and Atari Teenage Riot's Alec Empire which will likely be released as an EP later this year.
The eclectic singer made her acting debut in the 1987 Icelandic movie "The Juniper Tree." Her most recent solo album, 1997's "Homogenic," featured the original version of "Joga."
Björk will discuss the soundtrack and other topics during a live Web chat on the ARTISTdirect network (www.artistdirect.com) on Thursday at 4 p.m. (ET).
