Something very Artificial Intelligence has arrived and it’s got all sorts of Black Mirror meets the year 3000 written all over it.
Intrigued? Listen up!
Basically, Björk has updated her 2015 release ‘Vulnicura‘ with an immersive Virtual Reality element, courtesy of OTHERWORLD, and it looks pretty epic. If you’re one for an immersive experience like being strapped into a jet plane with ten minutes to solve a puzzle, or riding the Murder Express whilst obtaining clues to a fatality in a very the Colonel in the library kinda way, then this is definitely your bag.
The otherworldly experience is available for Björk fans for 16 weeks, allowing for users to step into the mind of the creative genius, exploring the Icelandic locations that inspired her songs and mind-bending immersive experiences tied to each track. Gosh, imagine if they did this same thing for an alt-J album…

OTHERWORLD are bloody awesome. It is, quite literally, what it says on the tin; a neon-cum-pastel extravaganza that’s all about VR, immersion and zingy Scientific fanfare. You’d think the location was all hush, hush but it is in fact cuddled up underneath a railway arch in Haggerston. Take a wander down there and, Harry Potter-esque, enter a new and groovy world where cocktails, craft beer and island cuisine are thrown in.
During your Vulnicura journey, you’ll get even groovier with Icelandic-themed tipples rustled, shaken and stirred about by resident mixologists. Whether it’ll make your head spin as much as the super-powered PCs and top-end virtual reality headsets we don’t know. But one thing’s for sure, you’d be bjarking mad to miss this…
Of the experience, Björk shared her thoughts: “Vulnicura is the first album of mine that insisted for the songs to be in a certain chronological order, after they’d been written it became apparent that I’d unintentionally topped into the narrative of a greek tragedy.
VR is not only a natural continuity to the music video but has a even more intimate theatrical potential, ideal for this emotional journey. ”
