Limited LP : Limited edition blue vinyl
The 4th Agnes Obel album and her first for new labels Deutsche Grammophon (Europe) and Blue Note (North America). Following the same principles as with her previous albums ("Philharmonics", "Aventine" and "Citizen Of Glass"), which she completed as a one-woman project in her own Berlin home studio, Obel has been under self-imposed creative isolation with the removal of all outside influences and distraction in the writing, recording and mixing process. “ The albums I’ve worked on have all required that I build a bubble of some kind in which everything becomes about the album.” “For me the production is intertwined with the lyrics and story behind the songs,” says Obel. "Paradoxically, for me I need to create my own myopia to make music.” Obel was experimenting with techniques of recording processing, warping and pitching down vocals, strings, piano, celesta and lutheal piano, finding ways to melt these elements together to become one and twisting them in a way that you feel at home within the sound she conjures throughout the record.
