The band have officially released the title along with the tracklisting on their official website. The album will be called Kid A, as rumored earlier, and will be released on October 2, 2000. The release dates will be different in some other countries, so stay tuned for that info as it comes in. Two new songs in the tracklist, “Treefingers” and “Idioteque“, have not been played live yet.

Okay, here’s the tracklist:

01. Everything In Its Right Place
02. Kid A
03. The National Anthem
04. How To Disappear Completely
05. Treefingers
06. Optimistic
07. In Limbo
08. Idioteque

You may notice that some tracks like “Knives Out” and “Dollars and Cents” are not on the list. These and all the other new songs will be released in the near future by the band in the form of b-sides, EP’s, or possibly another album. Once anything is known, we’ll have it here.

Dancer in the Dark

As reported earlier, Thom Yorke has sung a duet with Bjork on a song on the soundtrack to Dancer in the Dark, a musical/film starring the Icelandic singer.

Entitled I’ve Seen It All, the song is to appear on the soundtrack for Lars Von Trier’s Palm d’Or winning film Dancer In The Dark (out in September), which stars Bjork and Catherine Deneuve.

“It was a gorgeous experience,” said, the Icelander. “We spent four days in Spain, singing a few hours a day. It’s been a dream of mine for a long time to blend my voice with his. That was lovely!” She also revealed that the working title for her album is Domestica, which is also being at the Spanish hillside studio where Post was recorded.

Bjork Slots Soundtrack Date, Chat

“Selmasongs,” Bjork’s soundtrack to “Dancer In The Dark,” the award-winning film in which she also stars, is now set for release on September 19.

Songs from the album will be culled entirely from music and dialogue in the film and, according to Bjork’s spokesperson at Elektra Records, “will be more like a Broadway cast recording than a soundtrack.”

“I’ve Scene It All,” a duet between Bjork and Radiohead singer Thom Yorke, also will be included on the soundtrack.

Last month, Bjork earned Best Actress honors at the Cannes Film Festival for her portrayal of “Selma,” a Czech immigrant living in the United States who has a hereditary disease which causes blindness. The musical, which was helmed by “Breaking The Waves” director Lars Von Trier, also won the festival’s Palme D’Or for best film.

“Dancer In The Dark” is scheduled to hit U.S. theaters in the fall.

Bjork will discuss the soundtrack and other topics during a live Web chat on the ARTISTdirect network ( on Thursday at 4 p.m. (ET).

Les Inrocks : In this movie, you sing in duet with Thom Yorke, don’t you?

Bjork : I always wanted to collaborate with him, to mix our voices… so, Selma (Bjñrk’s character) sings with Thom Yorke in her dreams. These kind of things never happen in the real life. But in a dream, you can sing with Thom Yorke.
