It has been revealed that singer Bjork is a massive fan of the Moomins, and therefore has composed 'The Comet Song'. She composed it after she collaborated with the popular Icelandic poet and author Sjon.
She has told BBC4 about the characters, and where everyone is permitted to be just as unusual and hyper as they are. None of the characters need to conform or obey rules so to speak. She even said that she has found traces of anti-authority in the Moomins, as she read the stories to her kids. She also adds that the characters are sans a sense of hierarchy and are all equal.
She has debuted this theme song and stop-motion clip on her official website.
Bjork has crooned her new song as part of a kids' film that is completely animated. The film is called Moomins And The Comet Chase. The track contributed by Bjork is called 'The Comet Song'.
