Björk is hard at work on the follow-up to 2011’s Biophilia, and on Tuesday, the Haxan Cloak revealed that he would be lending his eerie electronic musings to the Icelandic singer’s upcoming album. British producer Bobby Krlic took his stage name from Häxan, a 1922 silent film about witchcraft and demonic possession, and has proved his musical clout with disturbingly good album’s like 2013’s Excavation.
We’re excited and also a little afraid of what Krlic’s going to bring to Björk’s signature outlandish music, but the producer seems excited about the collaboration. In the announcement tweet, Krlic described the chance to work with the icon as an “honour.”
I can now share, with equal parts humility and excitement, the last few months I’ve been working with @bjork on her new record. An honour.
