  • DÍSA, Trentemøller

    Trentemøller releases brand-new song with DÍSA

    With the new album Memoria under his belt and right in time for the second leg of his album tour, Trentemøller releases a brand new song - Into The Silence.

    The new work fits seamless into the musical universe of Memoria and presents us with a wonderful, dreamy, guitar and synth driven Indie-song.

    Into The Silence is also the first cooperation with DíSA (Disa Jakobs), the singer of the all new Trentemøller band on the Memoria tour. Her vocals are perfectly woven into the song, sometimes floating above and sometimes shining through from the engine room.

    "During our recent tour," says Trentemøller, "Disa and I spoke about doing a song together. It felt quite obvious as we really developed a common language when we played so many concerts together already. After finishing our first leg of the tour, I immediately went to the studio and wrote the music for this song. It really came to me easily as I felt quite inspired. Disa then wrote this beautiful and bittersweet text that compliments the music so well I think. And her unique voice just melts into the music in a very natural way."

    Trentemøller will play a handful of shows in Europe before the entourage takes off to North America in September.

    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)

    If you missed out on the first leg of the tour – don't worry! There are some festival gigs and additional shows waiting for you:

    30/04 Murcia, Warm-up Festival (ES)
    03/06 Egeskov, Heartland Festival (DK)

    28/08 Nijmegen, Doornroosje (NL)
    30/08 Leipzig, Täubchenthal (DE)

  • 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.

    Hope to see you there!

  • 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.
