Additional info2016 European Play It Again Sam label 10-track LP - the 3rd album by Berlin based Danish singer/songwriter, composer and classically trained pianist - an album thematically circling around dissolution of privacy in the digital age heavily loaded with state and social observation with gathering and sharing information.

Obels ethereal voice is drenched in sombre and soothing, piano based, narcotic minimalism - dreamy and ghostly chamber pop infused with spinet, celeste, violin, cello, strings and long forgotten electronics ? featuring the singles "Familiar" and "Golden Green".

"Obel's penchant for pairing elements of Elizabethan choral polyphony with millennial angst, not to mention her liberal use of spinet and celeste, would seem pedantic in less skilled hands, but there isn't a single moment on the quietly stunning Citizen of Glass that doesn't feel authentic."

Vinyl is manufactured as a 180 g vinyl pressing, accompanied by download code - gatefold picture cover.
