please, dear god and all the saints, help her to have a website in keeping with the rest of her ethos, output and mission. i thought she *liked* technology. and art. and innovation. and beauty. and self-expression. and communication.
Sorry, but all this talk about "technology and innovation and self-expression" is nonsense when the website is simply impractical. Say, if you want to check out her tour dates, you have to wait 20 seconds until the animation loads, then figure out it should be under "past" and then under "gigography", then choose the year, only to realise that it hasn't been updated, so it doesn't feature her last two concerts. I'm glad M/M Paris expressed themselves with this design but it's a fuсking user interface nightmare.
agreed. that's why i put technology first, and communication last. and that's why i pray the new website does justice to her work by (among other things) being useable to the user.
the very first rule of web design is respecting the user. if you can't do that, why even bother to make a website at all? and i don't understand it, because she's never wasted a creative forum in her entire life. it makes no sense to have a crappy website, especially when you are björk.

The website makes so little sense. at least with things like the biophilia app and vr stuff there's the (perhaps flimsy) excuse that the ideas are ahead of technological capabilities & pushing boundaries. You can't say that for a website; it's just piss poor design leading to yet another bit of björk media that doesn't function :? I hope this new version will be usable.

it may not mean anything, but björk just changed all her profile/cover photos on her social media sites

perhaps in readiness for an official announcement???

possibly, but I'm going to guess that it's just the person who does her social media catching up with the gate's release

i hope so, but it could also mean they aren't ready to announce and they are buying time using 'the gate' pictures :mrgreen:

confirmation that the expected release date is in November (so that blurb in the French magazine posted by bjork.fr was indeed correct)

I believe the new thumbnail has something to do with the album cover. Plus an album cover with bjork's hair out would be refreshing!

little trivia : tho it may seem like a shot from The Gate video, it is not, as the video fades to a frontal shot of Björk before she assumes that position in the new pic

it seems to me they're building up the website for future announcements

counting down should start at least 10 days before
