Bjork's new studio album Biophilia has been attracting rave reviews since it began getting airtime, with many critics commending the quirky star on her forward-thinking ways and pushing music into a new age of innovation.

The album, which can be bought as a CD or digital download, is much more than just a listening experience – to get the most of it, the star wants people to engage with the music and the related media that comes with it.

One of the recommendations for music lovers is to download a free app from iTunes, which can be used on the iPad, iTouch or iPhone – or other related devices according to Bjork – which complements the music.

More so, individual apps can be purchased for individual tracks.

Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, she said: "This project started on touch screen and ended on touch screen. I started out thinking that I wanted to map out how I see songs, like how I write with touch screen, and I wanted to base it on my experience of musical structures."

She added that with touch screens she could "map out for the first the structures associated with my melodies".

"For me, I guess maybe it is a little idiosyncratic, but I felt it was nature for me," she told the news provider.
