A little while ago marked the 20th anniversary of Bjork's "Hyperballad" release. For whatever reason, I was never a real fan - until now. To commemorate the milestone Melbourne artist, Ben Abraham got with Tim Shiel and Luke Howard to create two distinct covers of the track.

I approached some friends of mine to help me work on a cover of “Hyperballad” to celebrate the anniversary—composer Luke Howard and producer Tim Shiel. We emerged with two very beautiful versions... I love how Luke’s lush string arrangement, with his subtle electronic instrumentation, highlights the timelessness of Björk’s writing and that Tim’s remix shows how compelling and fresh the song feels in today’s musical landscape. It’s daunting to cover such a celebrated work, but here we are with the utmost respect, and we hope you like it.
