Zane Lowe gave Ásgeir’s debut single ‘King and Cross’ its first play on his BBC Radio1 show last night - 4 July 2013. The single is now available on SoundCloud. Give it a listen below.
At just 21 years of age Icelandic singer-songwriter Ásgeir has become a sensation in his domestic music scene - staggeringly, almost 10% of the Icelandic population now own his debut album ‘Dyrd í dauðathogn’ – the English version, translated by John Grant, will be released worldwide this autumn as ‘In The Silence’. The Icelandic version has now gone triple platinum in Iceland and won Ásgeir 4 Icelandic Music Awards and a nomination for the Nordic Music Prize earlier this year.
Debut single ‘King and Cross’ is out 12th August 2013, and is now available for pre-order here.
Ásgeir supports Of Monsters and Men throughout the UK and Europe this summer. Click here for a full list of dates.
