Ólafur Arnalds

Acclaimed Icelandic composer ÓLAFUR ARNALDS is the latest artist to curate a compilation of the acclaimed Late Night Tales series. His contribution arrives on Jun 24, featuring music by artists like JAMES BLAKE and JULIANNA BARWICK but also three exclusive songs by ARNALDS (including a cover of the legendary DESTINY’S CHILD hit Say My Name). There’s also a previously unreleased song by his project KIASMOS on the sampler.

About his Late Night Tales instalment the composer states:

‘When I was asked to do the next installation of the Late Night Tales series I thought ‘This will be fun and easy, only a couple of days work. No problem!’. Six months later, I was still pulling my hair out in some kind of quest to make the perfect mix. As someone who has never really done mixes before, I learned a lot of things along the way and the whole experience was very inspiring. I decided to approach the mix in a similar way as I would one of my scores. This is the soundtrack of my life. I included songs from many of my friends and collaborators and tried to deliver a mix that represents who I am as an artist and where my influences are coming from – both personally and musically.’

You can listen to Kinesthesia I, one of ÓLAFUR ARNALDS exclusive songs from the sampler, below the trailer for the album right here.
