Nils Frahm announces new album, All Melody, reveals 2018 tour dates

on November 13, 2017, 12:09pm

German electronic composer Nils Frahm has announced a new record, All Melody. Frahm’s ninth overall album follows 2015’s Solo and is a set for a January 26th, 2018 release via Erased Tapes.

Ahead of recording All Melody, Frahm built himself a brand new studio inside the historic Funkhaus building in Berlin. He dubbed the space, Saal 3, and filled it with bespoke cabling, woodwork, mixing desk, and even a self-built pipe organ. Even in the custom space, however, the artist admits the album is only an approximation of the ideas he had going into the recording. “The music I hear inside me will never end up on a record, as it seems I can only play it for myself,” he said in a press statement. “This record includes what I think sticks out and describes my recent musical discoveries in the best possible way I could imagine.”

Pre-orders are going on here. Find a trailer followed by the cover art and tracklist below.
