They will be released on March 19th...

Alex Somers has confirmed plans for two new studio albums.

The composer is known for his work alongside former partner Jonsi, such as the acclaimed Riceboy Sleeps project.

These two studio LPs are his debut full length projects, and follow work on the scores for Taylor Swift’s Miss Americana and Black Mirror, amongst others.

Out on March 19th, 'Siblings' and 'Siblings 2' cast his work in a new light, but they have deep roots in his creative life.

“I’ve carried this music for a long time - so long that it’s become two albums,” Somers says in a press note. “I wrote most of it between 2014 and 2016, but I abandoned it at different stages, thinking nobody else would want to hear it.... I don’t know any artist who doesn’t struggle with creativity. But friends who heard it, especially Jónsi, encouraged me to finish it.”

He adds: “I’m really excited about making music that’s more relevant to where I am now. But first, I’m really excited to finally let Siblings go.”

The double-project is led by new singles 'Deathbed' and 'Sooner' - tune in now.
