Ólafur Arnalds Shares Bonobo Collaboration Loom

Thursday, 15 October 2020 Written by Jon Stickler

Ólafur Arnalds has shared a new song, Loom.

The atmospheric electronic composition carries a dream-pop aesthetic and sees the Icelandic artist teaming up with Bonobo, real name Simon Green.

It marks the latest preview of Arnalds' forthcoming LP, 'Some Kind Of Peace', due out on November 6 via Mercury KX, following the previously shared Woven SongWe Contain Multitudes and Back To The Sky. He said:

"I am a long time fan of Bonobo and have been fortunate enough to get to know Simon as a friend in the last few years. Last year we spent a couple of days in the studio, after travelling and camping in the Icelandic highlands, with no intention other than to spend some quality time with music.

"Later, as I started working on the album, I kept coming back to that one piece, Loom, as it felt like the perfect album opener. We kept working on it remotely early this spring and the end result is something I'm incredibly proud of."

Commenting on the collaboration, Bonobo added: "Loom was one of the pieces we worked on together during that time. It was a real honour to create something with Ólafur. A friend and someone I admire greatly."

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has caused Arnalds to postpone all of his 2020 shows, with rescheduled dates still to be confirmed. He will close the first night of Iceland Airwaves' virtual festival, Live From Reykjavík, on November 13 at 11pm GMT.
