About this item

Fresh perspectives unveiled on poignant reissue of the late Jóhann Jóhannsson’s debut album, set for release by Deutsche Grammophon in remastered form with additional album of reworkings.

During the weeks before his untimely passing on February 9, award-winning Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson was closely involved in preparations for the reissue of his debut album, “Englabörn”. Originally released in 2002, the record had been especially remastered, and a second disc containing reworkings of a number of its tracks had also been assembled.

Some were by Jóhannsson himself – including a piano version of the title track, performed by fellow Deutsche Grammophon artist Víkingur Ólafsson – while others involved included Ryuichi Sakamoto, A Winged Victory for the Sullen and his close friend and long-time collaborator Hildur Guðnadóttir.
