    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

    I have 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 our 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.

    Never Coming Back (Trentemøller Remix)

    I don't do remixes anymore but when one of my all time favorite bands A Place To Bury Strangers asked me to remix one of their songs 'Never Coming Back' from their latest album, I, of course, could not say no! The remix album ‘Re-pinned’ gathered great artists with Slowdive, David Davy Drones, No Age, Eric Copeland, METZ, TBO and Roly Porter, I'm very glad to have my part in this release. 

    The album is out today on digital platforms, streaming and the best of all on VINYL!!

  • 'Transformer Man' by Neil Young

    Hey folks,

    I cover a very special song by Neil Young for the 'Harbour Boat Trips Vol.2: Copenhagen' compilation that will be released on hfn music in a few months. With the suggestion of Marie Fisker and after long reflection I decided to cover the controversial song 'Transformer Man' from Neil Young's record 'Trans' from 1982. 

    Although I’m a huge Neil Young fan, I actually didn’t know about this song until Marie Fisker played it to me when we sat down and thought about some songs that would be fun to cover for the Harbour Boat Trips Mix I was working on. I wasn’t a fan of the song and its sound in the first place, but the melody, especially the hookline, somehow caught me.

    The song is quite far away from what I would normally listen to and so it wasn’t an obvious choice and instead I took it as a challenge to see in which direction we could take the song. I thought it could be interesting to get rid of all that disco/vocoder stuff and focus on the song itself and suddenly it shined in new splendor. Marie interprets the song in such a personal way that it feels like, for us at least, it’s nearly a brand new tune. That’s what she’s really good at. I also felt it fits perfectly into the whole mix.

    "The Last Resort" on triple vinyl!


    My debut album "The Last Resort" is reissued on triple vinyl in a gatefold sleeve! I'm so thrilled to finally have all the songs from The Last Resort on vinyl for the first time! 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 when it was released in 2006, but also the foundation for where I am today. So I'm really grateful that the album is still being praised and recognized for its composition and sound-design. 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’ I'm happy to finally present, for the first time, the full album on vinyl! 

    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 my first show 'Trentemøller Live in Concert tour' in 2007 by the excellent photographer, author and music video director Karim Ghahwagi, check it out!
