Piece heard: Jóhann Jóhannsson - Ég heyrði allt án þess að hlusta (A Winged Victory for the Sullen Rework)

Shortly before his passing, Jóhann completed a new record: 'Englabörn & Variations'. With this, now seeming like a parting gift, Jóhann reinterpreted pieces off his 2002 debut album 'Englabörn' and invited other artists he admired to do the same. With the support of his family, these Englabörn reworks, as well as a newly remastered version of the original 'Englabörn', will be released by @dgclassics on March 23rd.

@dgclassics release Jóhann's OST for James Marsh's 'The Mercy' today. Link in the bio.

''The soundtrack is equally highly worked, though dominated by Oscar-nommed Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson’s original score, which sports a variety of textures apt for a movie that often feels like a vintage prog-metal concept album illustrated.'' - @variety on Jóhann's score for @panoscosmatos' #Mandy, which just premiered at @sundanceorg. Full review in bio.

Jóhann's 2006 record 'IBM 1401 A User's Manual' on vinyl for the first time. Order link in the bio.

Jóhann is set to perform at @colours_cz in Prague on July 21, 2018. All dates in the bio.

Very happy to announce that Jóhann was awarded 'Film Composer of the Year' at the @worldsoundtrackawards in Ghent.
