Björk Contributes Song to Children's Film


Details of Björk’s latest project may strike as oddly familiar, with a children’s tale serving as inspiration. But instead of Wild Things, the Icelandic songstress will be singing with hippo-like trolls and donkey-like tails in mind, as she lends songs to the theatrical production of Moomins and the Comet Chase.

Björk will write “The Comet Song” with long-time collaborator Sjón (“Bachelorette,” “Wanderlust”), with the film set for an August or September 2010 release. As Björk’s website explains, both she and Sjón have been long-time fans of the fictional creatures, created by Finnish author/illustrator Tove Jansson.
