Listen: Efterklang release new album 'Altid Sammen'
'Altid Sammen' is the fifth album from Danish pop adventurers Efterklang, marking their first release in seven years. It's a record full of sonic experimentation, which the trio are known for, and examines the relationships that connect us from nature to death and much more in between.
'Altid Sammen', out now via 4AD, is the trio's first record sung completely in their native language. The translations of the lyrics are beautiful, but the inability to decode the language also allows a new interpretation. The album's songs are about belief and togetherness, frontman Casper Clausen said in a statement. 'Not in a religious way—none of us are believers of a defined religion. The words are searching for meaning in intimate relationships, in nature, in death and eternity. Listen to 'Altid Sammen' in full below.
