Details

Telegram is the first full-length remix album by Icelandic singer-songwriter/musician Björk. It's a collection of remixes of several tracks from her album Post which had all previously appeared as B-sides of the UK versions of the singles off Post, including the non-album track, My Spine. The cover was shot by Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki. All of the songs on Post were remixed, excluding "The Modern Things" and "It's Oh So Quiet". The collection also included one new song entitled "My Spine" which was originally slated to appear on Post but pushed out by "Enjoy", becoming the B-side to the UK It's Oh So Quiet single instead. The album has sold 228,000 copies in U.S. according to SoundScan.


For me Telegram is really Post as well but all the elements of the songs are just exaggerated. It's like the core of Post. That's why it's funny to call it a remix album, it's like the opposite. Telegram is more stark, naked. Not trying to make it pretty or peaceable for the ear. Just a record I would buy myself. Like a letter to myself, a sort of... "fuck what people think". It's a truth thing.

said Björk in an interview with Blah Blah Blah in 1996
