Björk Finishing Up Soundtrack

Icelandic pop-rocker also releasing EP with Alec Empire, Brodsky Quartet.

Icelandic avant-pop-rocker Björk is in the studio this month finishing the soundtrack to "Dancer in the Dark," Danish director Lars Von Trier's new film, in which she stars.

The movie and soundtrack will be released in the fall, an Elektra Records spokesperson said.

The former Sugarcubes singer (born Björk Gudmundsdottir) also has been collaborating in the studio with Alec Empire of Atari Teenage Riot, the spokesperson said.

The duo has recorded four songs with the Brodsky Quartet, a string quartet that also has recorded with pop-rocker Elvis Costello. The songs — "April," "Five Years," "Sod Off" and "Yoga" — will likely be released as an EP later this year, the spokesperson said.

"Dancer in the Dark" is scheduled to appear at the Cannes Film Festival in May.

Björk made her acting debut as a child in the Icelandic film "The Juniper Tree." Her most recent solo album, the dark Homogenic (1997), featured the song "Hunter" (RealAudio excerpt).

Atari Teenage Riot, a German techno-punk outfit, released 60 Second Wipe Out last year.
