Björk's 6th studio album is promising to be a ten track eclectic mix of beats & vocal, reflective of Björk's visit to Aceh, one of the hardest hit areas of the 2004 tsunami. It also hits hard on Bjork's anger with what is happening in the world right now. According to her interview with Pitchfork, Bjork admits Volta is a “sort of reaction to the state of the world today.” She explains, “I mean, the human race, we are a tribe, let’s face it, and let’s stop all this religious bullshit. I think everybody, or at least a lot of my friends, are just so exhausted with this whole self-importance of religious people. Just drop it. We’re all fucking animals, so let’s just make some universal tribal beat. We’re pagan. Let’s just march.” Her vision is worth the price of submission.
