NILS FRAHM ANNOUNCES ENCORES 2 EP + SHARES NEW TRACK “SPELLS”
Nils Frahm announces the release of Encores 2 on January 25th 2019, the second in a series of EPs accompanying the release of the universally acclaimed album All Melody, with the 12-minute ambient odyssey Spells.
While Encores 1 focused on an acoustic pallet of sounds with just a solo piano and harmonium, Encores 2 explores a more ambient landscape from the All Melody sessions, the pinnacle of which is the astral 12 minute showpiece Spells. Recorded through an amplified stone well Frahm found on Mallorca, Encores 2 is at once unique but familiar; orbiting the universe of All Melody while inhabiting its own world.
“The idea behind Encores is one we had from before All Melody; to separate releases each with their own distinct musical style and theme, perhaps even as a triple album. But All Melody became larger than itself and took over any initial concepts. I think the idea of Encores is like musical islands that compliment All Melody”
Nils Frahm wraps up an exultant year with two shows at London’s Hammersmith Apollo on December 4th and 5th, followed by a sold out four night residency where it all began at Funkhaus Berlin, December 11th-14th.
The All Melody world tour continues apace in 2019 across Europe and the US, for all dates and tickets: http://www.nilsfrahm.com/concerts.
