Julia Jacklin has teamed up with fellow Australian's RVG to cover Björk's 1995 song "Army of Me".

"Army of Me" originally featured on Björk's second album Post, and today (27 May) Julia Jacklin and RVG have collaborated on a cover of the 1995 song for the RISING: Singles Club.

Jacklin says of the cover, "I just love Björk and I love RVG. I was running on a treadmill which I don't do very often and I was listening to "Army of Me" over and over again to make me feel stronger than I am. Then I thought why not try and cover this song with another artist that makes me feel stronger than I am and I did! It was a good musical punch in the face to wake me up from a year of living a very small quiet life. RVG are one of my favourite bands in the whole world and it was a real blessing to spend some time with them making music."

RVG add, "We adore Julia’s music and were thrilled when she asked us to do a precious Björk song with her. I think we all wanted to challenge ourselves a bit and do things we haven’t done before in a studio, while at the same time just having fun and letting ourselves be as intuitive as possible."

Julia Jacklin and RVG's cover of Björk's "Army of Me" is out now on Transgressive.
