MYRKUR ENTERS THE STUDIO WITH RANDALL DUNN TO RECORD FOLLOW UP TO HER MASTERFUL DEBUT M
TO BE RELEASED ON RELAPSE FALL 2017
Danish composer and classically trained multi-instrumentalist, MYRKUR entered the studio to record the follow up to her masterful debut M, released in 2015 on Relapse to overwhelming critical acclaim. She's revealed Randall Dunn
as the producer who is known for his work with Marissa Nadler, Earth,
Sunn O))), Boris, Wolves In The Throne Room and more. They began work
last week in Copenhagen's Black Tornado studio and round things off the coming weeks in Dunn's own Seattle studio.
"I have spent the last year writing songs for this record and choosing
which ones should make it. It has been a very different approach as well
as process, compared to my debut album. I am mixing Kulning into the
melodies, an ancient Scandinavian herding call and the lyrics are in
different languages. I am very happy to have Randall Dunn produce the
album here in Copenhagen, even though he is American, he seems to have
Nordic blood and music running in his veins. It's a very exciting
juxtaposition for me."
album will include special guests (to be announced shortly) and an
array of special instruments including Nyckelharpa, violin, mandola,
folk drums and Kulning as previously mentioned. The album is slated for
release this fall on Relapse Records. Stay tuned for more details.
