Björk dedicates song to Pussy Riot

by Oobah Arthur Paul Butler, 13 August 2012

Björk dedicated her track ‘Declare Independence’ (watch below) to Jailed Russian Punk Act, Pussy Riot at a show in Helsinki, Finland at the weekend. The aforementioned group are facing up to seven years in prison for ‘hooliganism’ – I know. In her statement, Bjork appeals to ‘folks’ as a ‘musician and a mother’, inviting the band to join her on stage to perform ‘Declare Independence’ with her. Check out the statement released via her personal site below:

dear folks

here comes a statement in defense of pussy riot:

as a musician and a mother i would like to express i fiercely dont agree with them being put to jail because of their peaceful protest performance . they are currently standing trial and facing seven years in prison for this.

in my opinion the russian authorities should let them go home to their families and children

i would like to invite pussy riot to join me in a particular song on stage : which was written for all enhancement of justice ( you can guess : once , which one )

warmth , björk’

Purchase and listen
