Sondre Lerche is the artist's sixth full-length album and his first on his own label, Mona Records. An artistic statement of purpose, this fittingly self-titled album contains not only Sondre's most interesting arrangements and catchy songwriting to date, but also some of his most somber and introspective. Here the Norwegian-born artist relishes in exploring friendships and creative alliances forged in his new Williamsburg, Brooklyn neighborhood. The album features longtime producer/collaborator Kato, Dave Heilman, drummer for Lerche-collaborator Regina Spektor, and co-producer, mixer and owner of Rare Book Room Studio, Nicolas Verhnes (Spoon, Animal Collective). Sondre Lerche captures a raw, spontaneous, instinctive and heartfelt sound that results in a declarative and confident work many call Lerche's boldest and best album to date.
