laust-sonne-classic-relations-l


The multi-award winning Danish singer/songwriter Laust  Sonne releases EP of 3 songs, unplugged and backed by a string quartet of highly professional orchestral musicians on the 6th of March 2015.

Prior to the release of his forthcoming studio album ‘Relations’ the 15th of May,  Laust Sonne releases ‘Classic Relations’, an EP with unplugged acoustic recordings of the three first singles to be taken from the album, “On The Radio”, “Sunday Morning” and “Reckless”. It gives a rare and unique opportunity to sit back and enjoy one of the real promising stars for 2015, a great performer and someone with an unquestionable talent. 

Laust Sonne has toured all over the world, played 1000’s of concerts in metropoles such as Beijing, New York, Paris, London and Berlin along the way. He’s won 4 Grammy, a Nordic lifetime achievement award and the ‘musician of the year’ award in Denmark, the most prestigious music award for musicians there.

It’s the first time Laust releases an acoustic and unplugged recording and the result is very different from his usually glorious multi layered studio productions that is to be found on the studio album that is out in May.

Some artists record introvert acoustic versions of their songs, but here is a real sense that Laust enjoys the company of these great orchestral musicians, that have played with who’s who of world famous conductors all over the world, including Berlin and Copenhagen. The string arrangements by Australian born Pete Morrison are both complex and exciting, and show cases his great talent for writing the un-expected. This playfulness matches these undoubtable hit singles, and a song such as ‘Sunday Morning’ already sounds like a song that will last forever, a real classic.

The release will be supported by live shows that is to be announced in the near future.

Laust Sonne – Classic Relatiotions – Unplugged with String Quartet is released the 6th of March 2015 via Billy B Records / Kontor.

“One production never shows the full picture of what a song can be or can do. It shows one side. Therefore, doing different versions can help to show the listener all the different moods a song can contain. Like, maybe there ´s a little more heartbreak in Sunday Morning, than you would think from first hearing the original version. And maybe Reckless is a little bit more romantic than you thought? And again, maybe On The Radio is really a sad song? Stripped down like this, the songs offer different colors and nuances than they did before.”
