NPR Radio – Live Broadcast Plus New Interview/Article
Community radio giant NPR announced today that they will be transmitting a live broadcast of Bjork’s full concert from the United Palace in New York. It airs approximately 8pm ET on Saturday, May 5th. Until then you can get your Bjork fix for the day by reading the lovely article NPR has posted, where they discuss the upcoming album with Bjork herself. She relates more about the creative energy and turbid state that inspired this more aggressive and more political side of her. As she tells NPR at one point :
“It’s about being exhausted with the self-importance of religion, and thinking, ‘okay, wait a minute, maybe we are one tribe, and we’re actually part of nature, and trying to suggest some kind of patent for that.”
Definitely check that out on NPR. The concert series will also be broadcasting a solo concert by Ben Gibbard, live from Washington, D.C.’s 9:30 Club on Thursday, May 10. More about that on this NPR page.
