As one of Iceland’s most successful exports, Ásgeir has spent the time between his record-breaking debut album (now celebrating its 10th anniversary) and today pushing the boundaries of his textured, thoughtful brand of folk-pop.
He released his fourth studio album, Time On My Hands, in October via One Little Independent Records. He shared a new single this month, ‘Dan Nos Rêves’ (In Our Dreams), a collaboration with French singer Clou.
At only 20 years of age, Ásgeir released the fastest-selling debut album in Icelandic history – ‘Dýrð í dauðaþögn’ / ‘In The Silence’. The album was made up of 10 tracks of soul-searching folk featuring lyrics penned by his father, Einar Georg Einarsson – a retired school teacher and poet.
Winner of the 2012 Album of the Year at the Icelandic Music Awards. It sold so many copies that it is estimated one-tenth of the population in Iceland owns the album.
