About this song

SONG INFOPerformed by Björk with the London ChoirBeats: ShlomoPiano: Nico MuhlyVocal samples: Robert WyattProgrammed by: Björk, Mark Bell, Valgeir SigurdssonThis song was premiered at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece."Basically, the Olympics people asked me to do a kind of 'Ebony and Ivory' or 'We Are the World' type song.
