The new album 'Afterglow' is out today

It's almost five years since I released my debut album Dýrð í dauðaþögn in my home country Iceland. Never would I have thought of what life then had in store for me. Back in 2015 after constant touring and traveling the world over and over again I finally started working on my second album. I would be lying if I wouldn't say it was tough at times...really tough. The pressure was high and I felt it, not just from other people but also myself. The turning point of the album was when I went to stay with my mom in my old hometown and worked with my father on a few songs. That's when I gained peace and it felt like the album all came together after that. Afterglow is out today. I'm really proud of it and I hope it will make the world just a little bit nicer.
