    Recap: Trentemøller MEMORIA Spring Tour 2022

    Trentemøller and his band just finished the first leg of the European MEMORIA tour! After a fantastic kick-off in Scandinavia, they played Amsterdam, London, had some amazing shows in Belgium, France and Switzerland and a grande finale in the south, playing shows in Milan and Bacelona. "It’s been such an amazing and heartfelt experience playing for so many lovely people in 12 different cities … and boy … I’m gonna miss my incredible sweet and talented band members.", says Anders himself. 

    For the MEMORIA tour, Trentemøller set up a completely new band: The brilliant Disa Jakobs adds her beautiful vocals and plays guitar and synth. Brian Batz joins in on the guitar and Jacob Haubjerg helps out with bass, guitar and vocals. On the drums, we have Silas Tinglef (2nd Blood) and last but not least, Trentemøller himself on the keys. 

    Also, we would like to give a big shoutout to the support acts School of X, Mavourneen and Living Ever After, who did a bad ass job!

    Here's the media's take on the MEMORIA tour:

    "Standing in Den Grå Hall and seeing and hearing the fusion of images, lights, music and song - after hearing the School of X warm-up from the long queue - was cathartic." (GAFFA, DK)

    "I noticed an intense anticipation that was only further affected by a beautiful lighting setup (v. legendary lighting designer, Leroy Bennett) - the combination especially of the lights (which were accidentally or unintentionally in Ukrainian colors) and the later often diffuse visuals (which brought to mind drone videos of bombed-out cities)." (GAFFA, DK)

    "[...] each piece of the puzzle falls into place, forming a much more complex image than expected, to which even the most reluctant must surrender, letting themselves go." (L'Indiependente, IT)

    "[...] a unique balance between the airy singing, the grounding mix of electronic beats and the acoustic support." (Dansende Beren, BE)

    "A rollercoaster of contrasts and sensations dressed in a masterful set of lights that left the audience spellbound by so much virtuosity." (Scanner.fm, ES)

  • Trentemøller's sixth album "Memoria"

    Out now: Trentemøller's sixth album "Memoria"!

    Analysis and fixed processes have supplanted mystery. Romanticism is in short supply. Luckily there is still music being released that pushes back. Anders Trentemøller’s new album, MEMORIA, seems to exist at the confluence of inspiration, coincidence, and maybe even a little bit of the supernatural. 

    After unexpectedly releasing four songs on two singles in 2021 (No One Quite Like You and Golden Sun), one might have been surprised to find a full album’s worth of material waiting in the wings. As with most Trentemøller releases, it’s a body of songs that are thematically linked by many melodic threads. 

    Classically speaking, memoria (memory) is one of the five canons of rhetoric, along with discovery, arrangement, eloquence, and recitation. It’s how stories are told, and memoria is the central pillar. Trentemøller’s songs never deliver the completed narrative, that’s for the listener to construct, but in every track exists these five seeds, primed for germination. 

    For MEMORIA, it is the first time Trentemøller has written all lyrics and vocal melodies himself. His girlfriend Lisbet Fritze helped bringing the songs to life and Dóra Dúna created the amazing artwork. The release of the full album was accompanied by the release of the music video for the single "Like A Daydream":

    Besides the digital release the album will be also available on double-vinyl in gatefold sleeve, on CD and on cassette.

  • MEMORIA premiere listening session with Pitchblack Playback!

  • Trentemøller – No More Kissing In The Rain

    Out Now: Trentemøller - "No More Kissing In The Rain"

    The fourth single of Trentemøller's studio album "Memoria" was released on January 14th, 2022: “No More Kissing In The Rain” announces itself with an overture to a synth opera shot on supersaturated film. Warm waves of sweeping, lush pads soon land to make space for vocalist Lisbet Fritze’s tone-setting proclamation:

    “My dear, I am running out of time.”

  • Trentemøller - Dead Or Alive

    Just released: "Dead Or Alive"

    "Dead Or Alive", the new single taken off Trentemøller's sixth studio album "Memoria", is out now. It comes with a thrilling music video by Danish director Fryd Frydendahl. 

    Whereas the previous release, “All Too Soon,” delicately explores our chapter of mortality, “Dead or Alive” comes from a more primal place. Disorienting strobe light guitar collides with a jet flanging psychic assault, ratcheting everything up one more notch before it all collapses upon itself.

    We're going back on tour again!

    Trentemøller announces first leg of his extensive 2022 Memoria Tour with an all new band

    15 years after the acclaimed Danish composer, musician and producer Trentemøller released his milestone debut album The Last Resort, the new and sixth album 'Memoria’ has been announced for release in early 2022 on his own label In My Room.

    In stark contrast to the previous studio album, Obverse (2019), Memoria is intended and almost demanding to be presented on the live venues and festivals which we have all been longing for during these past couple of years.

    Besides an exciting stage- and light design collaboration with the legendary lighting designer Leroy Bennett (who has worked with Nine Inch Nails, Prince, Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney, etc) Trentemøller will be joined on stage by an all new band consisting of four carefully selected musicians: Icelandic solo artist Disa (vocals and guitar), who possess exactly the ethereal voice that Trentemøller has been searching for to perform the haunting vocal melodies from Memoria, Silas Tinglef (drums) is releasing music as 2nd Blood who’s debut EP is produced and mixed by Trentemøller and released on In My Room, Brian Batz (guitar) is the man behind dream pop/shoegaze band Sleep Party People - and Jacob Haubjerg (bass) has long been playing with bands like Sleep Party People and Savage Rose - while also releasing music in his indie pop/post punk project Luster.

    New single "All Too Soon" out now

    Copenhagen Denmark’s master of melding melody with the ethereal, Anders Trentemøller, has released “All Too Soon”, the new single from his sixth studio album, Memoria. It’s a sensory sojourn that lives in the fleeting space where transience and the terrestrial meet.

    Trentemøller announces new album 'Memoria'

    Danish composer, musician and producer Trentemøller announces his new studio album 'Memoria' which is set for release in early 2022 on his own label In My Room alongside the first single 'In The Gloaming' which is released today.

    Anders Trentemøller’s sixth studio album, Memoria, seems to exist at the confluence of inspiration, coincidence, and maybe even a little bit of the supernatural.

    A recent, unanticipated drop of four songs, in the form of two singles (No One Quite Like You, and Golden Sun), might leave one surprised to find that a double album’s worth of material was also waiting in the wings. As with most Trentemøller releases, it’s a body of songs that are thematically linked by many melodic threads.

    The first single from the upcoming album, 'In The Gloaming', which is released today, implies the arc of the album might have actually begun late in the day, giving the sensation of waking in the evening. Nocturne’s dawning. Stars emerge in the form of percussive arpeggios.

    2019’s Trentemøller album 'Obverse' was an exercise in what could be done if the prospect of performing the songs onstage wasn’t a factor. It opened up some doors, and signaled a new chapter.

    Memoria, even considering its resplendence, almost feels like it demands to be presented live as well.
