AGNES OBEL "GOLDEN GREEN" THE NEW SINGLE * LISTEN HERE FROM THE NEW ALBUM, CITIZEN OF GLASS, DUE OUT OCTOBER 21


Currently in the throes of a new love affair (musically speaking) I am writing a review of Agnes Obel's new album "Citizen of Glass" which deftly bends every genre of music that it blends together from third stream classical expermental to flourishes of jazz and blues
 to dark goth but until I post it listen to the latest offering "Golden Green" below. Enjoy.

AGNES OBEL "GOLDEN GREEN"
THE NEW SINGLE * 
FROM THE NEW ALBUM, CITIZEN OF GLASS, DUE OUT OCTOBER 21



LOS ANGELES, CA - WEDNESDAY, August 31, 2016 -- "Golden Green," the new single from Agnes Obel, is now available to stream and as an instant grat with pre-orders of her upcoming album, Citizen Of Glass, set for an October 21 release on Play It Again Sam/[PIAS].  The album, which will be available as a digital download, CD with lyric booklet, and on 180g black vinyl LP + download code in a gatefold sleeve, can be pre-ordered now from  www.agnesobel.com 

"Golden Green" is the second single from Obel's new album, following "Familiar," described as "hauntingly beautiful," "a pointillist, arpeggiating, strings-flecked stunner," and "ASMR-worthy," by the UK's The SunThe Sunday Times, and The Guardian, respectively.

Obel is a talented, smart and self-determined young woman who wrote, performed, produced and mixed Citizen of Glass, an album that deals with the willingness to be open, to be honest, to be transparent...like glass.

The Denmark-born, Berlin-based Obel is a headliner in Europe, has sold more than a million copies of her last two releases, accumulated more than 250 million track streams worldwide, and received glowing reviews here in North America - and she is one of film director David Lynch's favorite artists.  Her music is powerful and emotional, hauntingly beautiful.  Obel will tour North America in 2017.

Golden Green
All I have or should
want to be but never could
it's coming at, it's coming at, it's coming at my heart
To spoil my soul with fire

All my eyes can see 
is born out of your imagery
it's coming at, it's coming at, it's coming at my heart

Tell me who you really love
Tell me who you really love
Tell me who you really love
Who are you to take over my mind
with your eyes on me
All for you I am climbing the sky
of golden green

Angel green and blue
I'm gonna leave my mind with you
It's coming at, it's coming at, it's coming at my heart
I know, I see, I wanna be just free
I know, it craves, it's running through my veins
To spoil my soul with fire

Tell me who you really love
Tell me who you really love
Who are you to take over my mind
With your eyes on me
All for you I am climbing the sky
of golden green

Green
Green
Green
