Our favourite progressive electronic producer Arca and Icelandic visionary Bjork have been supplying us with an avalanche of brilliant musical creations this year, from Björk’s groundbreaking virtual reality music videos to Arca’s shadow-filled fashion soundtracks and both of their work in Björk’s most heartbreaking album to date, Vulnicura (plus these insane remixes of it).
Arca has been quietly prolific over the past few months. A couple of weeks ago, an Arca remix surfaced of Lana Del Rey’s drama-soaked “Honeymoon” and what we think is 2013’s “Young and Beautiful”. And now, we’ve been treated to this intensely beautiful live violin version of Björk’s “Come to Me” (below), which Arca posted on his Twitter earlier today. The track was performed at a show in Barcelona last week alongside an orchestra, and was described by Arca as, “our new arrangement of CoMe To mE gushing oozing slime out of every pore.”
You’ll probably recognise the “slime-oozing” track from its appearance on Björk’s influential 1993 album Debut, minus the heart-searing violin. Which one is your favourite?
