Listen to Ólafur Arnalds’ new album ‘some kind of peace’

Words: Dylan Murphy

The ground-breaking composer has shared a new 10 track album.

Icelandic multi-instrumentalist Ólafur Arnalds has shared his new album some kind of peace. It features the likes of Bonobo and Josin and sonically-speaking is the perfect remedy to much of the chaos in the world.

Composed of thoughtful chord progressions and meditative backdrops it sees the artist tell an immersive and introspective life-story.

Ólafur’s music will also feature in the forthcoming Netflix documentary on Shawn Mendes, In Wonder, which is set to be released on November 23.

Speaking on the Album Ólafur said, “It’s so personal that I’m still trying to find the words to talk about it,” Arnalds says. “I felt it was important that the album would tell my story in a very honest way.”
