Bjork's First Song From the Biophilia Album Is Now Out (as an iOS App)

After all the hoopla surrounding the fact Bjork's got a new album and that she's releasing it as ten in-app purchases, it's finally here, with the app itself costing zilch, and the first song just $2.

You can pre-purchase all ten songs for $10, which would be the better option for true fans—and lest you think it's just a straight MP3-playing app, think again. Bjork's cannily packaging each song with extras, such as karaoke versions (just imagine!), lyrics, an essay, "abstract song animation, and with the first song, Crystalline, downloaders can also play a tunnel-racing game.
