Album in a Bottle

Excited to tell you all that I'm set to drop a one-of-a-kind 7” vinyl inside a ‘bottle’ into the ocean ahead of my headline slot at Iceland Airwaves Music Festival tomorrow night. To execute this unique and exciting project I have teamed up with geothermal utilization engineering company, Verkís Verkfræðistofa, scientist Ævar vísindamaður and RÚV (The Icelandic National Broadcasting Service).

You can watch the drop live on my Facebook page starting at 1:15pm GMT today, Friday November 3rd.

The bottle, which will be dropped from a helicopter just South of Reykjanes/Keflavik will hold a very rare 7” of two tracks recorded during my 24h Straight to Vinyl recording marathon earlier this year. It will also be equipped with a satellite transmitter that provides its location every four hours via a GPS receiver, enabling you guys to observe the journey of the bottle live on my own website and via Verkís' website. The album may take days, weeks, months or years to end up on shores elsewhere in the world and whoever finds it at the end of its journey will be the lucky winner of the rare 7”!
