Bjork stuck with Biophilia
as the album title, despite initially misunderstanding its meaning. She explained to Stereogum
: "It was pretty early on. I was reading a book by Oliver Sachs called Musicophilia
and it really inspired me. That must have been two and a half years ago. Because I'm not really good in English, I said, 'oh wow, [Biophilia] could be a title for the project,' but 'Bio' thinking 'Nature.' Later somebody told me it means 'love of life.' I was more thinking 'nature-like' or 'morphing into nature.' My bad sense of English thought it was feeling up nature or something - Biofeelingup. When I read about it online some people were speculating about the name - I think they went to a dictionary and saw that it means "love of life" and – and I was like "Oops. OK, I can go with that."
