  • Out now: In The Garden (song and video)

    Trentemøller returns with new song and video "In The Garden"!

    When she was handed the music to Anders Trentemøller’s “In The Garden,” Lina Tullgren may not have known it was meant to be an instrumental, like the rest of the songs on the new album. In a meta way, it feels right that the lyrics she contributed plot the journey of a kernel in an artist’s mind to becoming a fully fleshed out idea, and ultimately a completed work. No stranger to warbling, compressed guitars, and reverb-soaked ambience in her own music, Tullgren unsurprisingly understood where Anders was coming from, and stitched in her contribution, creating a symbiosis between instrumentalist and vocalist. 

    The song itself has the feel of something being constructed right before you. A simple beat is answered with chords played on a bass guitar. With each verse and chorus another layer is added, encasing what came before it, like a sonic Matryoshka, until the chiming guitar finally arrives to resolve the whole thing, and usher the listener to the end of the song. 

    “In The Garden” merges the idea of the slow build with a compact tune that gets to the point, developing subtly, and demanding another listen to ascertain what just happened. 

    Trentemøller has personally created the accompanying music video, just as he did with “Sleeper” (released in May). Watch the video here.

    “In the Garden” gives us a second taste from the forthcoming Trentemøller album, which will be released in the fall of 2019.

    A song for Stærk&Christensen

    Trentemøller has made a new song with Lisbet Fritze for a short film feat. Sean Penn and Helena Christensen as part of Stærk&Christensen's exhibition “ In My Dream Last Night ...”, an exhibition of films, stills, sound & objects by Camilla Stærk and Helena Christensen, which took place at the National Arts Club in New York.

    Check the short film and the Trentemøller/Fritze song here.

    More films have been created with collaborators Chrysta Bell, Jackson Carter, Oh Land, Salman Rushdie, Sebastian Sartor and Waris Ahluwalia, cinematography by James Demetri and Christian Larsen, produced and executed in partnership with Velem and Milk, New York.

    You can watch all short films here.


    The official press release says:

    ‘In My Dream Last Night...’ is the armature behind an ongoing short film and sound concept by creative duo Stærk&Christensen, in collaboration with a number of artists from various fields who are a continuous source of inspiration to the duo. A collection of personal moments, thoughts and dreams are revealed and interpreted through each collaborator, underpinning the composition of the work.

    Surreal in nature, the collective dreamscape created by the films, stills and objects explore the duality of darkness and lightness within the mind, envisioning a universe through the spectrums of the poetic, the erotic, love and solitude. The surreal cinematic experience highlights Stærk&Christensen’s fascination with capturing authentic emotional gravitas, physical movement and voyeuristic opportunity.

    Whilst Camilla Stærk and Helena Christensen are independently known within the fashion industry, together they are creating a growing body of work within the realms of design, architecture, photography and film.

  • Soon to be released: Trentemøller’s groundbreaking full debut album „The Last Resort“ on triple vinyl

    Trentemøller‘s debut album 'The Last Resort' remains one of the few genre-defining and groundbreaking albums in many regards. It‘s still being praised for its composition and sound-design alike and sounds as fresh and breathtaking today as it did when it was originally released in 2006.

    The album received fantastic acclaim from both music fans and journalists around the world and made it into the top-lists of the month, the year, the decade - alongside an array of awards for best production or best album.

    The original vinyl-pressing only included a selection of songs from the original 13-track album release. It missed out on songs which had been released on singles or didn’t “fit” on the so called “vinyl edition”. Due to ‘public demand’ and simply because this album deserves a proper vinyl release we are happy to finally present, for the first time, the full album on vinyl. It spans over three vinyl discs and is packed in a beautiful gatefold sleeve which also holds a download-code.

    "I'm so thrilled to finally have all the songs from The Last Resort on vinyl! It's my debut album and an album I'm very proud of, so many memories lay in this music. The Last Resort was like a snapshot of where I was in my life back then, but also the foundation for where I am today.“ stated Trentemøller for this very special occasion. To be released on the 8th of June, pre-order here.

    In the meantime the album’s lead track "Take Me Into Your skin" appears now in a new video with the original visuals made for the first 'Trentemøller Live in Concert tour' in 2007 by photographer, author and music video director Karim Ghahwagi, check it out!
