Singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and collaborator; the mighty Ásgeir has shared brand new video for latest single ‘Stardust’, taken from his highly anticipated and daringly electronic second album ‘Afterglow’. The unique video takes a cinematic trip back in time, to the iconic golden-age of entertainment. Ásgeir performs the role of a crooner, whilst a fictional famous synchronised swimmer named ‘Stardust’ takes centre stage.
Out on 5th May via One Little Indian Records in the UK and Columbia in the US, the Icelandic artist has spent three years honing and perfecting the eleven tracks that make up this magnificent and affecting body of work.
Ásgeir explains: “Stardust is a song that I wrote fairly early on in the whole new album process – it was around summer 2015. I wanted to write a pop song that experiments with various sounds and production and that wouldn’t be too ‘serious’. The outcome is, to me, a very honest song that comes from a part of me that I usually don’t pay much attention to.”
