Jóhann Jóhannsson was one of our dearest friends and finding words to articulate how we feel about this release today comes with no ease. When Jóhann asked us to rework a composition from ‘Englabörn’, we were delighted as it felt like such a beautiful way to return to the beginning of our relationship and add something new to his incredible legacy. Not knowing and understanding the impact it would have now; it feels special; like a closing circle. The music that survives him will be preserved in a state of suspended youth to consume like cultural relief packages. We will be forever grateful that our paths crossed in this lifetime and we profoundly miss him.
