Biophilia is the eighth studio album by Icelandic singer-songwriter Björk, released in October 2011 via One Little Indian Records.

Björk is an Icelandic singer and songwriter. Over her four-decade career, she has developed an eclectic musical style that draws on a wide range of influences and genres spanning electronic, pop, experimental, trip hop, IDM, classical, and avant-garde styles. 

Björk composed Biophilia as a concept album during the 2008–2011 Icelandic financial crisis, exploring the links between nature, music and technology. Billed as the first "app album", Biophilia is a multimedia project released alongside a series of apps linking the album's themes to musicology concepts. It was followed by a series of educational workshops in four continents.

Four singles were issued before the album's release in 2011. Crystalline, co-produced with English dubstep duo 16bit, was released as the lead single in June 2011, accompanied by a music video directed by longtime collaborator Michel Gondry. It was followed by the singles Cosmogony, Virus and Moon.

Björk promoted the album with the Biophilia Tour, which began at the Manchester International Festival in June 2011 and ended in September 2013.

Biophilia received critical acclaim and was named one of the best albums of 2011 by several publications; it was nominated for two awards at the 55th Grammy Awards in 2013, winning Best Recording Package.

It debuted in the top 40 of every chart it entered worldwide, topping the Taiwan chart and peaking in the top 5 in Iceland, France and Denmark. The album reached #31 on the Australian ARIA Albums chart.

In 2014, Biophilia became the first app included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Check out a couple of other tracks from the album:  Hollow, Mutual Core and Thunderbolt (live).

This is a Limited Edition Coloured Vinyl Double Album 2LP Record set on Orange / Blue Viinyl housed in a Gatefold Sleeve with Inner Sleeves and a Digital Download Code, pressed in Europe.
