Citizen Of GlassDanish-born singer-songwriter Agnes Obel is back with her highly anticipated third studio album, Citizen Of Glass. Featuring lead single 'Familiar', the album was recorded, mixed and produced by Obel in Berlin.
Obel was at an early age guided into music by the influence of her parents, who would play and listen to a blend of the classical greats, folk music and contemporary pop. She learnt to play piano as a child but it was her move to Berlin in 2006 that prompted her to take her music to the next level. Her debut Philharmonics was released in 2010, a quiet phenomenon that spent seven consecutive weeks at number 1 and sold in excess of 100,000 copies in her homeland alone. The release of Aventine in 2013 cemented her status as a household name across mainland Europe and as an icon to piano players throughout the world. With combined sales of over a million copies of her first two albums and in excess of 250 million track streams, plus critical acclaim and commercial success already under her belt, she is now perfectly poised for true breakthrough success in the UK and US too.
Already respected by an impressive list of musicians and media, Obel remains a truly global artist with a rare ability to connect with a broad audience across many boundaries.1. Stretch Your Eyes

Aventine (Awaiting Repress)'Aventine' is the second studio album from Agnes Obel. It is the follow up to her critically acclaimed debut album 'Philharmonics' (2010), which has sold 450,000 copies across Europe, achieving Platinum status in France and Belgium, five times Platinum in her native Denmark, where Agnes picked up five Danish Music Awards (the Danish Brits) in 2011.
Originally from Copenhagen, Agnes has lived in Berlin since 2006, where 'Aventine' was recorded at her Chalk Wood Studios between January and May this year. Like 'Philharmonics', the new album was written, arranged, and produced by Agnes, who provides piano and vocals. Anne M_ller, who has also played with Nils Frahm, adds cello, with Mika Posen of Timber Timbre playing the violin and viola on 'The Curse', 'Pass Them By' and 'Fivefold'. Robert Kondorossi of Budzillus plays guitar on 'Pass Them By'.
While touring 'Philharmonics' I kept on getting all these ideas for recording, and I wanted to explore the cello and other string instruments says Agnes of 'Aventine'. I recorded everything quite closely, miking everything closely in a small room, with voices here, the piano here - everything is close to you. So it's sparse, but by varying the dynamic range of the songs I could create almost soundscapes. I was able to make something feel big with just these few instruments.1. Chord Left
