Iceland (AP) - Bjork's music is sometimes best left just heard, and not explained. Such is the case with the left-of-center Icelandic artist's description of the meaning behind her forthcoming new single, "Hidden Place," from Vespertine.
"I guess 'Hidden Place' is sort of about, um, how two people can create a paradise just by uniting. You've got an emotional location that's mutual. And it's unbreakable. And it's, uh, obviously it's make-believe", Bjork tells in an interview set to run on Aug. 21.
"So, you could argue that it doesn't exist because it's invisible, but, uh, of course it does. And it's sort of a one-nil situation. Or, um, yeah, if you believe in something high enough," she continues. "I mean, maybe at first when you mention it, and you talk about it and it doesn't exist. It might be artificial, but you just keep on believing in it and it grows strong. It'll become real, you know. And I guess that's something, sort of the human spirit conquering the dullness and boredom".
"Hidden Place" is scheduled to hit radio on Aug. 2 with the DVD single due in stores Aug. 14 in the U.S. Vespertine is due Aug. 28.
