Nils Frahm Combines Three EPs into New Album
'Encores 3' EP lands September 20, with 'All Encores' LP following on October 18.
On the heels of his 2018 All Melody LP, Frahm released two EPs featuring tracks that didn’t quite make the album cut. Encores 1 focused on an acoustic pallet of sounds with solo piano and harmonium at the core, and Encores 2 explored more ambient landscapes. He’s now announced the third instalment, Encores 3, featuring the song “All Armed.” The EP will be available on September 20.
Erased Tapes will then release a collection of all three of the Encores EPs on one comprehensive album entitled All Encores, which will be out October 18.
Frahm explains: “The idea behind All Encores is one we had from before All Melody; to separate releases each with their own distinct musical style and theme, perhaps even as a triple album. But All Melody became larger than itself and took over any initial concepts. I think the idea of All Encores is like musical islands that compliment All Melody.”
