Ahead of his European tour, including the London Barbican show on Friday December 9th, Jóhann Jóhannsson has released a new ‘Song For Europa’ video. The track is taken from Johann’s recently released album ‘Orphée’.
Jóhann will embark on a major European tour starting tomorrow. The programme will feature material from his recent solo album ‘Orphée’, as well as new arrangements of works from his solo catalogue. He will be joined on stage by a brand new ensemble; an amplified string quintet featuring members of the Echo collective, supported by Toti Gudnason and Stars of the Lid’s Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie on guitar and keyboards, with Jóhannsson himself on piano and electronics.
For his London Barbican show on Friday December 9th, Jóhann will present a special concert with a choral emphasis, which reflects his current interest in working with voices. The performance will feature a mixture of music from his latest album ‘Orphée’, plus new arrangements of material from his solo catalogue, as well as premieres of choral pieces performed by Britten Sinfonia Voices conducted by Eamonn Dougan.
For the tour visual artists Stuart Bailes and Máni Sigfússon have created a bespoke light design and visual projections respectively – both commissioned specially for the tour.
