‘Anders Trentemøller transcends genres ... with a cinematic scope’, the NME once summarized and he is known for the ‘captivating complexity’ of his songs and ‘melancholic contradictions’ in both songwriting and sounddesign. It’s been a long and exciting way from his debut long player ‘The Last Resort’ (2006), through projects like ‘The Trentemøller Chronicles’ or ‘Remixed/Reworked’ to his second album ‘Into The Great Wide Yonder’ (2010).
The musical evolution of the Danish musical mastermind never was a linear ‘logical progression’ as it is rather characterised by twists and turns and lately maybe most importantly influenced by the development into a fully fledged live band, that meanwhile toured the globe a couple of times with huge success.
With the arrival of Trentemøller’s third longplayer ‘Lost’, which is due for release in September 2013 on Trentemøller’s label In My Room, it seems as if everything he’s done in the past was destined for leading to the new album. The new album breathes all aspects of the electronic years as well as the guitar driven second album - in a fresh, light-footed way with a wealth of fantastic songs, incredibly well produced.
Now we are happy and proud to present the first single taken off the new album. ‘Never Stop Running’ is an empathetic, personal, evolving song, that perfectly melts with the expressive vocals of The Drums singer Jonny Pierce with that beautiful melancholia that warms your heart.
The vibe of the song is captured in the video by director and cinematographer Frederik Jacobi. Both the song and the video comprehend the question ‘Who Am I?’. While Trentemøller’s song carefully carves out different shades and moods centered around the main motif, Jacobi took his camera to Los Angeles and used it to ‘listen’ to people and to create a visual space for the song, while the cover image appears courtesy of Asger Carlsen.
‘Never Stop Running’ will be performed live for the first time on 29th May at the O2 Arena in London when Trentemøller will be supporting the Depeche Mode concert.
