Cocoon (4:28)

Cover of Vespertine

From Vespertine and 8 other releases

Written by Björk and Thomas Knak.

About the co-writer: “I had to go to Denmark for a year. There was nothing going on. I was literally lying on the beach, looking at the ocean, with a ghetto blaster listening to Thomas Knak/Opiate’s album. I realised he was from Copenhagen. I just called him up.”

“The lyric to ‘Cocoon’ was a whole diary, then I had to edit 90 per cent of it out. It’s very hard to explain, but when I read it and the other person it’s about reads it, we don’t feel abused or anything. I think there’s songs where I’ve been more… scruffy about what I’m expressing. I have a problem with music that’s too indulgent. It’s like ; “Keep your own dirty laundry, please.”
