    We're going back on tour again!

    Trentemøller announces first leg of his extensive 2022 Memoria Tour with an all new band

    15 years after the acclaimed Danish composer, musician and producer Trentemøller released his milestone debut album The Last Resort, the new and sixth album 'Memoria’ has been announced for release in early 2022 on his own label In My Room.

    In stark contrast to the previous studio album, Obverse (2019), Memoria is intended and almost demanding to be presented on the live venues and festivals which we have all been longing for during these past couple of years.

    Besides an exciting stage- and light design collaboration with the legendary lighting designer Leroy Bennett (who has worked with Nine Inch Nails, Prince, Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney, etc) Trentemøller will be joined on stage by an all new band consisting of four carefully selected musicians: Icelandic solo artist Disa (vocals and guitar), who possess exactly the ethereal voice that Trentemøller has been searching for to perform the haunting vocal melodies from Memoria, Silas Tinglef (drums) is releasing music as 2nd Blood who’s debut EP is produced and mixed by Trentemøller and released on In My Room, Brian Batz (guitar) is the man behind dream pop/shoegaze band Sleep Party People - and Jacob Haubjerg (bass) has long been playing with bands like Sleep Party People and Savage Rose - while also releasing music in his indie pop/post punk project Luster.

    New single "All Too Soon" out now

    Copenhagen Denmark’s master of melding melody with the ethereal, Anders Trentemøller, has released “All Too Soon”, the new single from his sixth studio album, Memoria. It’s a sensory sojourn that lives in the fleeting space where transience and the terrestrial meet.

    Trentemøller announces new album 'Memoria'

    Danish composer, musician and producer Trentemøller announces his new studio album 'Memoria' which is set for release in early 2022 on his own label In My Room alongside the first single 'In The Gloaming' which is released today.

    Anders Trentemøller’s sixth studio album, Memoria, seems to exist at the confluence of inspiration, coincidence, and maybe even a little bit of the supernatural.

    A recent, unanticipated drop of four songs, in the form of two singles (No One Quite Like You, and Golden Sun), might leave one surprised to find that a double album’s worth of material was also waiting in the wings. As with most Trentemøller releases, it’s a body of songs that are thematically linked by many melodic threads.

    The first single from the upcoming album, 'In The Gloaming', which is released today, implies the arc of the album might have actually begun late in the day, giving the sensation of waking in the evening. Nocturne’s dawning. Stars emerge in the form of percussive arpeggios.

    2019’s Trentemøller album 'Obverse' was an exercise in what could be done if the prospect of performing the songs onstage wasn’t a factor. It opened up some doors, and signaled a new chapter.

    Memoria, even considering its resplendence, almost feels like it demands to be presented live as well.

  • Trentemøller - No One Quite Like You feat. Tricky

    Out now: Trentemøller - No One Quite Like You feat. Tricky

    After Golden Sun/Shaded Moon Trentemøller now concludes his series of summer singles with "No One Quite Like You feat. Tricky". Out now!

    His new song "No One Quite Like You” features Tricky reciting a six word mantra over a five note passage. The entire song is bathed in intimacy, from studio vérité elements like the mechanical noise and hammer clacks of the piano, to Tricky’s weary delivery, which falls somewhere between a lullaby and a warning. Add to this Byzantine string arrangements by fellow Danish violinist Maria Jagd arrive, and you have yet another mesmerising release from Trentemøller.

    The reflective piano figures of ‘Vespertine’ manifests this subtle yet powerful prologue to the A side of the second and last stand alone single release of 2021 by Trentemøller.

  • Trentemøller - Golden Sun

    Out now: Trentemøller - Golden Sun!

    4TH OF JUNE 
    THE GOLDEN SUN
    WILL SHINE
    ON 
    YOU!

    And here it is! Golden Sun/Shaded Moon, Trentemøller's first release since 2019's Obverse LP, is out now! It's a return to instrumental compositions. It's the newest entry into an ongoing journal of compiled musical case studies exploring suspense and resolution. 

    As “Golden Sun” rises, we can feel the dew burn off, and our bodies become bathed in warmth. New themes hatch and rise, gravitating towards the song’s leitmotif. Pitches bend, morph, and we recall treasured days, lying somnambulant on a knoll, draped in beams of sunlight, intoxicated both naturally and chemically. As the song sets our eyelids finally succumb to the weight of sleep, and we dream of a collapsing star.

    “Shaded Moon” begins with a sequence of percussive bursts into the great wide yonder, while charged musical particles slowly assemble into an auricular borealis. The peak arrives as if to provide a score for the macrocosm reverting to its ostensible state of chaos, after a brief moment of order. It resolves with layers of pulsating synths, signaling the retreat of perigean tides.

    Trentemøller remixes Tricky

    Last September, Tricky released his “most darkly moving music in years” (Pitchfork), the critically acclaimed album Fall To Pieces. Now he announces a remix EP with contributions from Trentemøller, Kahn, LA Timpa and Lafawndah. Four artists known for their own trademark production styles recalibrate and incorporate Tricky’s music into their own sonic terrains.  

    “I was very honoured when Tricky asked me to remix “ Like A Stone “ as I’m a huge fan of his work - and it’s a really great song! I only used his and Marta’s vocals and build up an entirely new song around them, focusing on a melodic and mystical vibe.” - Trentemøller

  • TOM And His Computer by Morten Lundgren

    Out now: TOM And His Computer - "Puzzle", incl. Trentemøller Remix!

    TOM And His Computer drops the 2nd release from his upcoming debut LP 'Future Ruins' which will be released on Trentemøller's label In My Room October 16th.

    The pseudonym of Copenhagen hero Thomas Bertelsen, TOM And His Computer has already released a pair of very highly regarded EPs, preparing the ground for this full length adventure.

    For this 2nd single, TOM is teaming up with the legend that is Trentemøller, whom he has toured with several times and played as opener for his shows. On "Puzzle",Trentemøller works as a co-producer as well as providing a remix version of the track. The original is a spikey, psych/indie/electronic track again with vocals from Roxy Jules. The production is clear and lively, allowing the song to shine through while imbuing the proceedings with an exciting, urgent shimmer.

    Trentemøller’s remix takes things to another level - fat, chunky drums meet vox organ, fuzz guitar and freestyling synths in a riot of colour and playfulness.

  • Blaue Blume: Lovable (Trentemøller Remix)

    Trentemøller remixed Blaue Blume!

    Trentemøller remixed Danish artpop band Blaue Blume and the result is explosive!

    German indie label hfn music - sister label of Trentemøller's In My Room - marks its 100th release with this one. Way back in little 2009, the label hfn music was born in Hamburg, and made its introduction to the world with the release of the Trentemøller compilation Harbour Boat Trips: 01 Copenhagen.

    Fittingly, hfn100 sees one of hfn’s best songs of 2019 put into the hands of the man it all started with, Anders Trentemøller. His Danish compatriots Blaue Blume’s new album Bell Of Wool is one of hfn’s 2019 highlight releases, and so hfn100 sees Trentemøller remix one of its standout tracks: “Lovable”. The original is a gossamer-delicate composition that carefully stitches together layers of shining synths that gradually build up into a peak, before crashing into a subtle beat - a musical journey. 

    Trentemøller mirrors the original’s careful building up, adding new elements to fill in the song’s sound, before it collapses into a tough, noir disco groove. It’s a perfectly realised remix – Trentemøller keeps the original song’s skeleton and soul, but fills in the space with sonic touches that could be no one else’s but his.
