Of the new remix, Björk said in a statement:
Shy told me in his lyrics that he’s talking about both different love interests and fame and how suddenly everyone wants something from you and you should be excited but you’re not… and I decided to take an angle as a major “amour” . and give advice… because in “Ouch” she is asking a question and I decided to answer it from the SUFI angle which is: enjoy wanting and longing and NOT getting what you want but enjoy wanting it… how the whirling dervishes stretch when they turn it’s meant to represent that longing and being content with that…also on a more everyday personal level it’s about sometimes when you’re not satisfied in a relationship you shouldn’t wait for your partner to heal that or fix that …rather look at him as an accessory in crime or a partner who gets nowhere… Another human with that insatiable longing.
Earlier this year, Björk shared the remix of Shygirl and Sega Bodega’s “Ovule”.
