Kölsch announces new album ‘1983’

Kölsch - 1983 - ArtworkDanish producer Rune Reilly aka KÖLSCH has announced 1983, the follow-up record to his 2013 debut 1977. It will be released on June 8 via Kompakt and continues Reilly’s autobiographical approach for his own albums.

In a press release he states: ‘When I was a kid in 1983, we used to drive through Europe every summer on the way to the south of France. A lot of my early music memories stem from these long travels, as we would listen to all my father’s favorite records on the cassette deck. After getting a walkman, I would make up my own soundtrack for travelling, with early electro and hip hop creeping into my life. My father of course did not like it, and it never graced the official cassette deck of the car, obviously.’

You can stream a first piece, DerDieDas, off the new KÖLSCH record right here.
