"Unravel" is the third song on the album Homogenic by Björk, which was released in 1997.

The song features a prominent example of Björk's use of a half-singing, half-speaking technique which, according to folklore specialist Njall Sigurdsson, is comparable to that of old Icelandic choir-men.

Structurally, the song is made up of a slowly sweeping melody, strings and distant-sounding electronic beats.

In a 2006 interview with 'Spin' magazine, Radiohead singer Thom Yorke named "Unravel" his favourite song ever, adding, "I'm trying to get Radiohead to do a cover because I think it's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard." On November 8, 2007, Radiohead performed a cover of the song as part of their webcast.

A cover of "Unravel" appears on folk rock artist Okkervil River's split CD "Sham Wedding/Hoax Funeral," as well as the Japanese import version of alternative rock band Something Corporate's album "North."

The Flaming Lips added the song to their album "Late Night Tales: The Flaming Lips," which is a compilation of artists and songs that have affected and influenced the band.

Adem, a British singer, also included "Unravel" on his 2008 album of covers songs entitled "Takes."

Anthony Green and Casey Crescenzo performed an acoustic cover of "Unravel" as a part of a 2007 tour featuring Circa Survive and The Dear Hunter.
