Ólöf Arnalds has reached her target of achieving enough funds to finance and support her special project of her upcoming album. A big thank you to everyone involved who helped this become a reality with their kind donations!
However, if you haven’t donated but would still like to, fret not, there are still 3 more days to get directly involved with her pledge campaign for her third album ‘Sudden Elevation’, which is due for release in February 2013. This campaign comprises packages such as skype interviews with fans, signed copies, especially personalised artwork, additional cover songs chosen solely by the pledger in an exclusive engraved package, VIP concert tickets, acoustic living room performances and more.
This follows up a year of Ólöf writing and recording new material which incorporates entirely English lyrics for the very first time! She now feels that it is ready to expose to the world, and that this is a great and innovative way of raising the funds for videos, artwork and B-side recordings. Over to her for more.
“Every pledge will be rewarded with an early digital access to the album, one month before its physical release. The album is titled ‘Sudden Elevation’ and is my third LP, which was produced by Skúli Sverrisson and myself in and around Reykjavik earlier this year.
15 % of all pledges will be donated to Unifem, a cause I greatly respect and support.
As this is my first pledge, I really hope that this project will be well received. I truly look forward to connecting with my audience in a new way, and continue getting my music out there. Your support means the world to me!”
