Nils Frahm will release new album 'Old Friends New Friends' on December 3rd.
The project was started during lockdown, with the lauded composer looking through his archives.
Locating a number of unreleased and rare cuts, these solo piano recordings seemed to suggest a shadow side to his discography.
'Old Friends New Friends' is a subtle album, comprising 23 tracks that span the years 2009 to 2021.
Not quite a new album in its own right, it's also not a compilation; in Nils' words, “an anatomy of all my ways of thinking musically and playing. Maybe I could say it’s an album I worked on for twelve years, and finally I have enough material?”
New track 'All Numbers End' is online now, and it embodies his graceful, frosted touch – tune in now.
'Old Friends New Friends' will be released on December 3rd – order it HERE.
