Published Nov 29, 2018Having delivered surprise EP Encores 1 earlier this year, Nils Frahm has announced that a second instalment in the series will arrive early next year.
The composer's Encores 2 will arrive January 25 through Erased Tapes. The EP series comes in the wake of Frahm's All Melody LP, which arrived in January.
While the series' first entry found Frahm working with solo piano and harmonium, the forthcoming four-track effort was recorded through an amplified stone well found on Mallorca.
As Frahm previously explained in a statement, "the idea behind Encores is one we had from before All Melody; to separate releases each with their own distinct musical style and theme, perhaps even as a triple album. But All Melody became larger than itself and took over any initial concepts. I think the idea of Encores is like musical islands that compliment All Melody."

Frahm has a series of North American concerts set to kick off in March, including Canadian shows in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal. You can see the full schedule here.
