Icelandic singer Bjork says she has had successful surgery to remove a vocal cord polyp.
When Louis C.K. released his comedy special "Live at the Beacon Theater" by himself on his website for $5, it was little more than a cautiously optimistic experiment.
Icelandic star Bjork says her new album fuses the natural world and iPad apps to invent a music genre she calls an "appbox."
As a child growing up in Iceland, Bjork would compose music in her head as she walked to school.
Italian composer Ennio Morricone and Icelandic singer Bjork have received the 2010 Polar Music Prize from Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf.
Bjork said she was honored to receive the prize and that it "tickled" her vanity to be mentioned together with previous laureates such as rock band Pink Floyd and singer Joni Mitchell.
Speaking to AP ahead of the launch, Bjork said she sees "the structure and shapes of songs" during the creative process.
