AGNES OBEL has announced an extensive European tour to follow the release of her eagerly anticipated new album ‘Aventine’ on 30th September. The tour will take in Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Switzerland and the UK.
‘Aventine’ is the follow up to AGNES OBEL’s critically acclaimed debut album ‘Philharmonics’ (2010), which has sold 450,000 copies across Europe, achieving Platinum status in France and Belgium, five times Platinum in her native Denmark, where Agnes picked up five Danish Music Awards (the Danish Brits) in 2011.
Originally from Copenhagen, AGNES OBEL has lived in Berlin since 2006, where ‘Aventine’ was recorded at her Chalk Wood Studios between January and May this year. Like ‘Philharmonics’, the new album was written, arranged, and produced by Agnes, who provides piano and vocals.
