|«Extra Volume 3»|
KMFDM presents «Extra» - a three volume set of double disc collections of all KMFDM tracks not included on the ten KMFDM classic albums. Extra features remastered tracks culled from the band's 12" vinyl singles, CD singles and alternate versions of albums. All of the material on «Extra» has been out of print for many years with some songs appearing on CD for the first time ever.
Continuing the tradition started with the KMFDM classic releases the accompanying booklets for the «Extra» series are packed with exciting material. Highlights include cover art from every album and single from which cuts were taken (most covers are by famed KMFDM cohort Brute!) and never before seen photos of the band. As it has been with all the KMFDM re-releases, work on this series, from the remastering to the packaging, has been done with the highest level of participation from Sascha K., KMFDM's leader and founder.
«Extra Volume 3» (cat.no.: MET 570) will be available on October 7th via KMFDM Records/Metropolis Records.CD1

|«The Dull Flame of Desire»|
Björk releases the new single «The Dull Flame of Desire» on September 29th, 2008 via One Little Indian Records.
Flooded with melancholic passion and restrained hope, «The Dull Flame of Desire» sees Björk accompanied on vocals by Antony Hegarty from Antony & The Johnsons. Antony joined Björk onstage at her recent Hammersmith live shows and sang «The Dull Flame of Desire» to showstopping effect.
«The Dull Flame of Desire» features lyrics taken from a translation of a poem by Fyodor Tyutchev as it appears in the film «Stalker» by Andrei Tarkovsky. Taken from her most recent studio album «Volta», «The Dull Flame of Desire» is written and produced by Björk and follows recent singles «Earth Intruders», «Declare Independence», «Innocence» and «Wanderlust».
Björk has also commissioned brand new mixes of «The Dull Flame of Desire» by Modeselektor and Mark Stent as well as a Sinden mix of «Innocence». Mixes come on Limited Edition 12" and CD.
Meanwhile the video concept for «The Dull Flame of Desire» is as unique as we come to expect from Björk. Out of hundreds entrants for the «Innocence» music video competition (which ran on her official web site offering new directors the chance to work with Björk), she chose 3 new directors to collaborate on the «The Dull Flame of Desire» video.
Björk and Antony performed against green screen in New York then each director was sent the raw footage to edit and create their piece. Christoph Jantos (Berlin), Masahiro Mogari (Tokyo) and Marçal Cuberta Junca (Girona) are the chosen directors. Each director was given their own section of the film, to develop how they wished - on completion the 3 films were edited together in London to make the final music video.Tracklistings:
