New collaboration appears...

Olafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm are streaming new cut 'a2' taken from their upcoming 'Stare' release.

Members of the Erased Tapes family, Olafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm are intimately familiar with each other's work. However it wasn't until last summer that the two artists finally completed a full collaboration.

Playing a one off show, the material is due to be released on Record Store Day (April 21st). 'Stare' will find a home on Erased Tapes, who have already given fans a tiny preview of what to expect.

Reflecting on the collaboration recently, Nils Frahm said: "We got together in April 2011 and after having a big pizza, I plugged in some old analogue synths and we played for four days until late in the night. Also queen Anne Müller stopped by after a show with Agnes Obel to record some cello at 5 am in the morning for ‘b1’...we decided to do another 4-day jam at Óli´s E7 studio in Reykjavik. So I flew there in the end of October to repeat the trick and record some out of this world ambient music. It didn't take us too long to write ‘a1’ and ‘a2’. I can’t wait for the follow up!"

ClashMusic have managed to get our hands on the full stream of 'a2' - listen to it below.
