There is a world where sunlight is made of crystalline sugar and birds tweet atonally and there’s always music in the air, and that world exists in the moss-covered biome of Björk’s mind. And that same mind, for all of us who love everything the Icelandic pixiewitch does, is about to be featured front and center for Dazed And Confused’s 200th issue. No one would be a better fit for the Brit mag that expertly specializes in forward-thinking music and fashion, but the editorial control is also being handed over to the visionary singer (who may have taken flack for her groundbreaking Marjan Pejoski swan dress at the 2001 Oscars BUT was also was one of the first celebs aboard the Alexander McQueen train so THERE, haters).
Of course, she’s doing the technologically savvy thing and introducing her new album Biophilia, which is appearing as a multimedia experience (as if Björk would just cough out an album and leave it be) including music videos and iPad apps. But what is really spectacular is the cover that Dazed And Confused produced: She floats as a disembodied head and dons colorful face paint that Tune-Yards would envy, with a net of orange-ish hair dreamily floating behind her. This is a future worth getting excited for, and this is a mag that’ll be on our desks come July 7.
