Last year, at just 20 years of age, singer and multi-instrumentalist Ásgeir became an overnight sensation in his home country of Iceland with the release of In the Silence [Icelandic title: Dyrd í daudathogn] breaking all records to become Iceland’s fastest and biggest selling debut album by a home grown artist, outselling both Bjork and Sigur Ros. Staggeringly, one in ten of the Icelandic population now owns the album.
On March 4, 2014 the English language version of the album—with translation by acclaimed singer John Grant—will be released worldwide via One Little Indian Records.
