New album: "Saman"
June 11, 2014: Permalink: » New album: "Saman"
Hildur Gudnadottir's new album, "Saman", is to be released by Touch on 30th June 2014. This is Hildur’s 4th album for Touch, after “Without Sinking”, “Mount A” and "Leyfðu Ljósinu”.
This album is about resonance: on "Saman", which means "Together", Hildur melts her voice with her cello, connecting the two instruments together. The result is a highly involving and moving album, recorded, mixed and mastered in Berlin. Hildur’s sylph-like vocals contrast beautifully with rich cello tones, resolving the tension between light and dark to produce a unique listening experience.
Touch are now taking advanced orders for this new release - shipping will commence the week beginning 23rd June 2014. If you pre-order the album, you can download the a zipped MP3 (320 kpbs) version when you place your order…
