Two years after Island Songs, Icelandic BAFTA winning artist, composer, musician and producer Ólafur Arnalds released a new album. re: member is out now via Mercury KX. Arnalds has unveiled ‘re:member' featuring his ground-breaking new software, Stratus, which transforms the humble piano into a unique new instrument. The Stratus Pianos are two self-playing, semi-generative player pianos and the centrepiece of Ólafur's new works. The custom-built software controlling the pianos is the result of two years of work by Ólafur and audio developer Halldór Eldjárn. The algorithms generated from Stratus also helped create the innovative artwork for ‘re:member'.

Today starts his world tour in Lucerna Club in Prague, and then there will be dates in Italy, Switzerland, France and Holland before London and Reykjavik. Then he will move between the States, Australia, Canada and Europe again with the last gig in Oslo (8th of June 2019).  Ólafur says, "I'm very excited about going on tour again for the first time in three years. So far we have announced the European part of our tour this fall but more dates and countries to follow soon."
