The 10th edition of Record Store Day took place at the weekend, offering up special events, special edition merch and of course, special records for hungry music fans to go out and buy. On an annual basis, artists and labels around the world create limited edition pressings and editions of records to make available to their fans in honour of this occasion – and this year saw an extra special new song arrive from one of our favourite Icelandic artists!
Former Nordic Playlist curator Júníus Meyvant released his brilliant debut album Floating Harmonies in 2016. It’s a record packed full of sublime melodies, heart-wrenching vocals, and songs that we enjoyed so much, that we asked the artist to join us at Roskilde Festival in 2016 to perform one of them live at the Nordic Playlist caravan.
In celebration of the 10th anniversary of Record Store Day, Júníus Meyvant released a special deluxe edition of his album, including two brand new bonus songs, the first of which has now been made available to stream! So check out ‘Mr. Minister Great’ right here at the Nordic Playlist, and find out more about the man behind the music in this interview – filmed exclusively for the Nordic Playlist at Roskilde Festival.
