NW1 artist Olafur Arnalds Lands At #2 on iTunes' Classical Chart!

NW1 published artist and neo-classicist Ólafur Arnalds celebrates the release of his third full-length, For Now I Am Winter. The much-anticipated album hits the US iTunes Classical chart at Number 2!

At age 26, the Icelandic multi-instrumentalist and producer has been involved with various projects and has had his music appear in countless films, television shows and advertisements, including [Hunger Games, The Colbert Report, Calvin Klein]. This young prodigy has achieved the cultural significance in Iceland comparable to his fellow countrymen Bjórk and Sigur Rós.

For Now I Am Winter marks a departure from past releases; it is the first time Arnalds incorporates vocals. Four of the twelve tracks features prog-rock vocalist Arnór Dan Arnarson, making a profound impression on an already remarkable collection. Watch the official music video for "Old Skin" feat. Arnarson (above).

Arnalds will be playing his own show at Poisson Rouge in NYC on April 18 with Ensemble LPR and touring Europe over the next several months. Visit Olafurarnalds.com for more information.
