Nils Frahm has announced the third and final entry in his Encores EP series. Encores 3 is set for a September 20th release via Erased Tapes.
Like the previous two EPs, this latest effort contains outtakes from Frahm’s acclaimed 2018 album, All Melody. Whereas Encores 1 focused on acoustic sounds and Encores 2 dipped into a well of ambience, Encores 3 highlights the German composer’s more electronic and percussive moments. You’ll be able to experience all these sonic variations in one sitting when all three EPs are compiled as the appropriately titled All Encores LP, due out October 18th.
As Frahm explained in a press statement,
“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.”
As a first listen to the three-track Encores 3, Frahm has revealed “All Armed”. Hear the 11-and-a-half-minute song below.
Nils Frahm will support All Encores with a run of European and Australasia dates throughout summer and fall. Get tickets here.
