Remember, remember the 5th of November...I've been waiting for this day for a long time...
8 years ago I signed a contract for the release of my third album 'not your type' which was also my first officially released album in Iceland. Today, that contract expires :) I won't go into too many details, but what this means for me is that I can now release it myself :) It has been sitting like a caged bird on a shelf for so many years, there were no more copies of the physical album made after it sold out in Iceland, and it has only really been available from one online site. I've never seen any income from sales of this album, online or otherwise..
now if you buy this album :) it goes directly towards the creation of my next album!! I've been asked about this one so many times its wonderful to finally be able to share it. I'm so proud of it, although my voice is young ;) there are some amazing musicians playing with me and incredibly talented people who made this album happen.. It was after the release of this album that I won the Icelandic music award.
The photos are also some of the last that were taken with my naked face ;) Seems so strange to see it now after all these years..
On bandcamp which is where you get it from, you can listen to the whole thing for free! and name your own price/donation for downloading single songs or the whole album - everything goes towards the new album! (anyone who donates $100 or more gets a thank you credit on the next album :) ) (over $150 and I'll send you a thank you letter and package via snail-mail) *sadly no kickstarter options as I'm not US based so we are doing it here on the blog and via bandcamp!
Hope you enjoy it, so glad I can share it The whole-album-download includes special extras ;) photos, video and more..
Also coming very soon - youtube documentary by the wonderful Alina White, and interviews from Iceland... xx
