SOHN has shared a second song from his upcoming live album, Live with the Metropole Orkest. Artifice – a highlight from the 2014 album Tremors – is now available online here.
Late last year the British producer and songwriter shared a stage with the Grammy-winning Metropole Orkest and conductor Hans Ek for the opening night of Amsterdam Music Event. Combining SOHN’s signature glacial electronics with the 54 person-strong orchestra, the one-off live performance at celebrated Dutch venue Melkweg brought to life his best-known songs such as The Wheel, Conrad and Artifice.
Tune in on 22nd May at 2.30pm EST on YouTube and Facebook to watch the live performance in full, for one time only. For further details head here.
SOHN says, “It was an incredible opportunity to work with the Metropole on sculpting a very special evening in Amsterdam - the arrangements elevated the songs to another dimension, and luckily we recorded it all…. The album ended up being more than just a live record to me, it’s somehow a hybrid of dry electronics and rich orchestration and I’m very proud of how it turned out.”
Live with the Metropole Orkest will be released digitally and as a double vinyl LP on 5 June 2020.
