Björk comes out with the world's first VR album with a trippy experience for the HTC Vive
Björk is no stranger to mixing multimedia approaches and incorporating new technologies into her performances. Last year she released the 360-degree video for “Stonemilker” and this year she's making her first true foray into VR. This time around, Björk aims to bring fans the raw beauty of her native Iceland through the power of the HTC Vive.

The Björk Digital exhibition launches on June 3 in Sydney, Australia. During the event, the singer will present her fourth VR video from last year's live album Vulnicura - the live album chosen for a trippy VR makeover. The exhibition will also put in motion an 18-month world tour by the same name. The singer posted this short teaser for the event on her Instagram profile:

Attendees of the Björk Digital exhibition will have the chance to experience the breath-taking beauty of Iceland, sprinkled with a healthy dose of Björk's trademark weirdness. This is what visitors can expect from the new project, according to the press release:



Attendees will supposedly also have the chance to experience Björk Digital with Samsung Gear VR headsets. Vulnicura will eventually be available for download, though it's unclear when.

Anything but Kanye and that guy they call tyga. Didn't know she's still active after the 90s and early 2000.

I don't see why you guys had to bring him into this, it is embarrassing to be honest. Also the fact that the other guy lumped him and Tyga into the same category shows you two are very closed-minded.

Him :) What is wrong with it? We expressed our views and appreciate decency of musical taste that for once PA highlighted.

It's ok for Kanye to interject his opinions into anything, but not others? They brought him up because if there's one person who could ruin VR, it's him. If you have to go around telling everyone you're a genius, it generally means you're far from it.

She has an app called Biophilia ,it was around 13$ but now is totally free. I guess this has something to do with the VR stuff
