SOHN - 'Live with the Metropole Orkest' Released For Record Store Day 2020
SOHN : 'Live with the Metropole Orkest' Released For Record Store Day 2020
6th March 2020

4AD presents a special SOHN release for Record Store Day 2020.

Late last year the British producer and songwriter shared the 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’.

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 footage of their performance of ‘The Wheel’ is now available online here, and in the player below.

Live with the Metropole Orkest will be released as a double vinyl LP on 20th June 2020.

SOHN has announced three new shows in May, in the Netherlands.  Tickets are on-sale now.

20th - Melkweg, Amsterdam, The Netherlands [TICKETS]
22nd - Muziekgebouw, Eindhoven, The Netherlands [TICKETS]
