Hands, Heart - the third single from Ed Carlsen's upcoming LP Morning Hour - is out now! The track is an introspective look at the relationship between physical proficiency (hands) and inner creativity / soul (heart). You can discover the beautiful and patient musical gestures crafted by Carlsen with his trademark impeccable production on all digital outlets.
Sebastian Plano has done a lovely rework of Tom Adams’ track Particle V and it's out now in all of those digital shops and streaming sites. Can’t think of a better to start the week-end!
Constellations is Tambour at his finest - evocative piano melodies and ambient analog synthesizers paired with sweeping strings and french horn arrangements performed by the Mommies on the run string quartet (Patrick Watson) and Pietro Amato (Arcade Fire) - delicate and intimate moments give way to dramatic overtures, pulling the listener into a world of wonder.
Mixed by Mark Lawson in Montreal and mastered by Martyn Heyne at Lichte Studio (Berlin).
We are very excited to announce the upcoming release of Ed Carlsen's sophomore LP Morning Hour on September 27th. Written, recorded and produced over the last two years in Denmark, Poland and Italy, the record finds Carlsen taking his melodic modern classical sensibilities to new terrain, fusing string textures with electronica and melodic piano with swelling electric guitar, all the while exploring a diversity of upbeat and downtempo feels. We'll be sharing sounds, visuals and tidbits about the record throughout the summer, so stay tuned!

Written on his in-law's piano on Imperial Street in Toronto, this number was intended for his 2018 record Orbit. It was tough not to see it make the record as we fell in love with it, but came to agree that it had a different vibe to the rest of the album. A year after Orbit's release, we're excited to be sharing this one with you.
