Björk Visits Colbert

By Tom Breihan / February 1, 2012 - 8:51 am

If you’re going to walk into The Colbert Report with a giant red Brillo-pad wig on, you should expect to become a target. When Björk stopped by the show last night, Colbert could’ve justifiably given her a treatment only slightly more humane than the one she got in Dancer In The Dark. But surprisingly, Colbert took it pretty easy on her, asking her about her iPad apps and Icelandic elves without malice and generally letting Björk be just as adorably weird as always. Björk also got a chance to perform on the show, as a wailing choir and a guy operating touchscreen doohickeys backed her up on “Cosmogony.” Watch the interview and the performance below.

Björk’s album Biophilia is out now on Nonesuch.
