Though winter has passed, we couldn't be more excited to be taken back to those quiet, melancholy days by the sounds of Ólafur Arnalds. His latest album, Now I Am Winter is due out April 2 via Mercury Classics, but this Icelandic prodigy is offering a stream of the album via Hypem in its entirety now! Lucky for you, we're sharing it here, so you can enjoy the beauty of these songs early!
For Now I Am Winter is a beautifully complex composition that captures the essence of Arnalds' talent. The layered and electronic soundscapes feature vocals from Icelandic singer, Arnór Dan, giving it another element of intrigue. Take a listen and find yourself completely immersed in the building melodies that Arnalds created.
For Now I Am Winter is no available for pre-order and will be out April 2nd via Mercury Classics.
