The album is about voices. I want to get away from instruments and electronics, which was the world of my last album, ’Vespertine.’ I want to see what can be done with the entire emotional range of the human voice - a single voice, a chorus, trained voices, pop voices, folk voices, strange voices. Not just melodies but everything else, every noise that a throat makes.

- Björk on Medúlla for The New Yorker, 30 August, 2004

Desired Constellation - Björk

With a palmful of stars 
I throw them like dice
Repeatedly

I shake them like dice
and throw them on the table
Repeatedly, repeatedly

Until the desired constellation appears
and I ask myself

How am I going to make it right?
