Bjork's new video for 'Moon' is more than just a belt that doubles as a harp

In the video for  'Moon,' Bjork's latest single from the upcoming Biophilia album, she plays a harp-belt that coordinates with her gold nails. Her hair is also phenomenal but let's not get sidetracked--Bjork's music is really what steals the show. "Moon" is not as intense as the album's first single 'Crystalline' but it has a sparse, extraterrestrial quality that best showcases Bjork's piercing vocals.

Biophilia, which was released on the 27th of September, includes an interactive iPhone/iPad app for each song. Using touchscreen technology in a new way, Bjork offers games that are more like art projects. For example, in the app for the song 'Virus' you have to save a cell from viral infection. As a new stage of the viral cycle begins, a new part of the song plays. The biological process is linked to Bjork's music and when you beat the game, the music stops. How deep is that?

For diehard Bjork fans, there's also a $812 ultimate edition boxset for Biophilia. It comes with 2 CDs, a 48-page clothed-covered book, exclusive recordings and a selection of essays. Granted, if you are considering shelling out that much for a Bjork boxset, you probably already know all about it.
