Björk is a rare artist – a true original, a non-conformist with wide appeal, an extraordinary genre-busting musical individual who speaks to the heart, the head and the feet. She is the quintessential modern musician, ceaselessly innovating, and completely multi-dimensional in the way she uses performance, technology, fashion, video and art to complement her music.
1993's Debut served as the Icelandic songstress's first solo endeavor following the break-up of the Sugarcubes. The shimmering collection was produced by Nellee Hooper who also co-wrote five of the album's ten electronic dance-pop tracks and features the distinct singles "Human Behaviour," "Venus as a Boy," "Big Time Sensuality" and "Violently Happy."
"Debut was very much for me like a virgin trying to express herself, I mean a virgin musically. And that's why I named it Debut. And people who knew I had been around for many years just thought I was taking a piss or something. But for me it was very much like the songs I had kept in darkness and locked in my little diary, only to be seen by myself. The first time they were out on there own and had to figure out how to survive their own way." - Björk
