Björk recently took to social media to reveal an exciting song collaboration with the acclaimed Spanish singer Rosalía. While the song doesn’t seem to have an official title yet, it carries a significant purpose—to support the efforts of activists fighting against fish farming in Iceland, particularly in the Seyðisfjörður fjord. The track is scheduled for release this October, and its mission is beyond entertainment; it aspires to spark change in its listeners.
According to the activists and video, these fish farms hurt the local ecosystem and have taken a toll on the health of farmed salmon and what’s worse, is that the salmon that escape these farms are mixing with their free counterparts, disrupting their genetic DNA makeup and risking their survival.
In the video Björk shared, which explains the reason behind this collaboration, she writes that she is sharing a song that she and Rosalía sang together and that the profits will go to those fighting against fish farming in Iceland. She also said that both she and Rosalía want to donate all sales from the song to assist the activists with their legal expenses, and they hope it can set an example for others to follow.
The unexpected collaboration between these two artists may raise eyebrows due to their contrasting music styles.
