Back in late 2015 Icelandic singer ÁSGEIR songwriter told NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION that he started writing his new album and after a year of waiting he now unveiled all details for it. Afterglow is the name of the follow-up to the praised debut In the Silence. It arrives on May the 5th via Embassy Of Music/ Warner and the charismatic artist makes sure to not deliver another melancholic folk record. Or as he states it_
‘I feel like I have achieved plenty already with this album, gotten to know myself better, feel like I’ve grown a lot. Not just because of the album, but it has definitely helped.’
Instead he’s going full BON IVER, introducing electronic beats and R&B vibes to his music while keeping the tenderness alive. At least, that’s what his first single Unbound is all about. The song comes with a sensual but also quite sinister music video that is set in the not so distant future where a virtual lense application makes it possible to unleash our deepest desires. A second song arrives in the form of Stardust, both tracks are up for enjoyment below the album’s details.
