When Bjork started her solo career in the early 1990s, she was living in London and was heavily influenced by the dance scene, particularly the more leftfield and experimental producers. All her early singles came with interesting choices of remixers. Today, as it’s the last entry for Bjork a bumper crop of LFO, Beaumont Hannant, Plaid and the legendary Todd Terry.
“Hyperballad” was released as the fourth single from her 1995 album “Post”. Apparently, in the lyrics, she talks about waking up early before her boyfriend and throwing small objects off a cliff, watching them smash. She imagines her body in their place, which makes her feel better about returning to her safe home and the arms of her lover. Like you do eh!?
As a postscript, it’s been difficult selecting Bjork tracks to feature, since the wife can’t stand her voice and it’s banned in the house.
