Set for release next Tuesday, May 8th, Volta is the multiple Grammy-nominated artist's sixth full-length record, which features collaborations with producer Timbaland, among others, who has made Justin Timberlake and Nelly Furtado into two of the present's most successful entertainer.

Bjˆrk's Coachella set also included three other tunes off the upcoming Volta, as well as a mix of her previous hit singles and a selection of other songs from her precedent work. With extravagant backdrops, vibrant colours and an all female brass section, Bjˆrk held her own with two costume changes as colourful as her performance.
