New Björk Single Out, Proceeds To Benefit Pakistani Flood Victims

Songstress Björk has been busy as an Icelandic elf this year--in addition to working on her own new album (expected out early next year), she has guest-starred on projects by the Dirty Projectors, Antony Hegarty (of Antony and the Johnsons), and Icelandic singer-songwriter Ólöf Arnalds.

Her most unusual cameo, however, might be on the Finnish children's stop-motion animation film The Moomins and the Comet Chase. Björk wrote the title track for the film, which hits theaters this month. For a hint of how awesome it is check out the music video.

The Comet Song will be released on iTunes September 6th, and all proceeds will benefit UNICEF Pakistan. The recent floods have affected more than 17 million people in Pakistan, with 800,000 stranded in areas accessible now only by helicopter, and yet another monsoon is threatening even more damage--yet, support from the international community has been seriously lagging.
