By now, you’ll probably know that Iceland’s Ásgeir has created an English language version of his astonishing debut Dyrd í dauðathogn, an album that made him a household name in his home country. The translated version, which was prepared with the help of singer John Grant, just got a US release following the UK release earlier in the year. There is a new single coming out, and hurrah, a b-side as well.
Check out ‘Dreaming’ below, the b-side to the forthcoming single ‘Going Home’. On this dream pop/folk track, Ásgeir delivers moving vocals while a very heartwarming instrumentation evolves. Caution – you may shed a tear.
