Havnatt's Søvn I September releases September 1st

From Blogger: 20 JULY 2014

Havnatt's new single, entitled Søvn I September, was just set for its worldwide release on September 1st, and we had to share it with you right away. This single features the largest orchestral arrangement that the Norwegian duo has written and recorded this far, and the track also serves as a taste of what's in store for future releases. The amazing Robert Høyem - the guy who did the massive booklet for Havnatt's Etterlatte album - did the hand drawn artwork.

Havnatt would like to dedicate this single to Annika Becker, who is currently battling illness. Being a small, indie act, it is immensely important to receive good support from the Internet community. Annika has been a strong and friendly supporter, and we wish for a speedy recovery.

This digital distribution only release will be available through all of the following services simultaneously:

24-7, 7digital, Akazoo, Amazon MP3, Apple iTunes, Beyond Oblivion, Deezer, eMusic, Google Music Store, GreatIndieMusic, iHeartRadio, Inprodicon, JB Hi-Fi, MediaNet, Mondia Media, Muve Music, MySpace Music, Nokia, Omnifone, Rdio, Rhapsody, Samsung Music Hub, Shazam, Simfy, Slacker Radio, Spotify, Tradebit, WiMP, Xbox Music, Yandex.

Havnatt's Etterlatte album has been released!

From Blogger: 14 AUGUST 2013

Havnatt's Etterlatte album has now been released and will start appearing on various websites and services all over the world. Sites and services include secretquarters.com, iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon, Google Music, Last.fm, MySpace Music, Rhapsody, Shazam, Emusic, GreatIndieMusic, Spotify, Xbox Music and many others.

The Etterlatte album builds upon the foundation that Havnatt created with their Havdøgn EP (2012). All lyrics are still the unedited works of Norwegian author Tormod Skagestad. Largely based upon Cecilie Langlie's vocal performances and the acoustic guitar arrangements by Tom Simonsen, the sound is still unique, Havnatt-esque neofolk/dark folk. With Etterlatte the sound is also further expanded through larger musical arrangements that include piano, clarinets, violins and cellos, among others.

Each of the album's 12 tracks seeks to create a musical interpretation of one of Tormod Skagestad's poems, and deals with the unaltered lyrics of one entire poem. One interesting exception is the track VĂĄrnatta Er Ein Lys Felestreng (Del 1). "Del 1" (meaning "Part 1" in Norwegian) indicates that the lyrics of this poem was actually cut in half and that "Del 2" will follow on a later release. Another exception is the addition of the instrumental track Mellom Linjene. Furthermore, the album includes two separate interpretations of the poem entitled Sovande Gard. The first interpretation of this poem makes up the first track of the album. Then the lyrics of this poem return once more on track 11 - with quite different results.

The CD version of the album comes with a beautifully crafted 28 page booklet with hand drawn illustrations for each of the tracks. Tormod Skagestad's original lyrics have also been reprinted in the booklet with permission from the Skagestad family.

Havnatt is
Cecilie Langlie - vocals
Tom Simonsen - guitars, bass, piano, drums

Session musicians
Mira Ursic - violins
Rosamund Brown - cellos
Tiina Granum - clarinets

All tracks composed, arranged and produced by Havnatt.
All lyrics by Tormod Skagestad.

The lyrics used on this album were taken from the following collections of poems:
Om fjellprofilan lĂĄg ei gullrand spent (1946)
I natt skal mange vĂĄke (1947)
Mørkt vatten glir mot havet (1950)

Recorded, mixed and mastered by Tom Simonsen at the Secret Quarters studios.

We are releasing Havnatt's new single in just a little bit more than two weeks from now! The track is called Var je solblesten and has been taken from the upcoming album entitled Etterlatte. A special version of this track has been created for this single release and the track will show up in a slightly different version on the Etterlatte album, when that album releases some time next year.

The single will be released through digital distribution only, and we do not intend to make any physical copies of this single available for sale. The Etterlatte album will be available on CD as well as digital distro when it arrives.

Today's photo shows a tiny bit of some of the artwork that is in the process of being created for the Etterlatte album. The artwork is being done by the talented Robert Høyem.
