Mount Wittenberg Orca is a 2010 EP by Dirty Projectors and Björk, released on 30 June 2010 in digital-only format and released on CD and Vinyl by Domino Records on 24 October 2011. News of the album was announced on Björk's official website on 26 June 2010, four days before its release.
The vocals are dominant on all the tracks, which form an experimental and pop continuum.
In May 2009, Björk and Dirty Projectors wrote a musical suite entitled Mount Wittenberg Orca and performed it at a Manhattan benefit concert for the Housing Works nonprofit organization. In April 2010, Björk and Dirty Projectors recorded the suite at Brooklyn studio Rare Book Room.
Mount Wittenberg is located at Point Reyes National Seashore in California. The inspiration for the EP came when Amber Coffman of Dirty Projectors saw a pod of whales off the coast while hiking at that spot.
