Further Information

Finally on Vinyl my honeys!

Finally, it's time to get my solo albums on Vinyl.
Late this april, by popular demand, my three solo albums, Kvöldvaka, Amma and Ölduslóð are all scheduled to be released on vinyl form, 160 grams of plastic joy. Here's your chance to pre-order the albums, with new artwork and get little extra goodies as a bonus!

What can be more cozy than the ritual of putting on a warm folky Svavar Knútur vinyl album with its bubbling melancholy mixed with a trembling straw of hope when your existential crisis throbs and screams and gnaws at the very foundations of your soul?

My daughter, Dagbjört Lilja has created new cover art for the albums and I'm also releasing an EP called Weltschmerz, Waldeinsamkeit und Wanderlust, featuring a song each from Kvöldvaka and Ölduslóð, but also a new song, to be released on his next solo album as well as a traditional German folksong by Johannes Brahms.

Backers will get their own signed copies of the albums and signed prints of new, original poster artwork from Dagbjört Lilja.
High end backers will get the original paintings that make up the artwork for the LPs, signed by Dagbjört Lilja.
The most generous backers will get a living room concert by Svavar Knútur at the earliest convenience.

We really would appreciate your backing of this project, as pressing Vinyl is a very risky and expensive venture and your help in making it happen is greatly appreciated!

Also, the new artwork is awesome!!!

Loksins á Vínyl elskurnar!

Loksins loksins er kominn tími á að gefa plöturnar mínar út á Vínyl! Allar í einu!
Fólk hefur komið að máli við mig og heimtað vínyl! HEIMTAÐ segi ég og skrifa! Og nú er kominn tími til að uppfylla óskir vínylnördanna vina minna. Um miðjan apríl næstkomandi munu allar þrjár sólóplöturnar mínar, Kvöldvaka, Amma og Ölduslóð koma út á 160 gramma brakandi plastunaði! Hér er ykkar séns að forpanta plöturnar með algerlega nýjum myndverkum framan á og fá jafnvel smá bónus.

Hvað getur verið notalegra en að skella hlýlegri þjóðlagatónlistinni með ólgandi melankólíu og nötrandi vonarstrái á fóninn þegar tilvistarkreppan nagar undirstöður sálarinnar eða jafnvel kúra sig undir brakandi kunnugleik Ömmuplötunnar á köldu vetrarkvöldi.

Dóttir mín, Dagbjört Lilja er búin að vinna nýjar forsíðumyndir á allar plöturnar og ég er líka að gefa út EP plötu sem heitir "Songs of Weltschmerz, Waldeinsamkeit und Wanderlust", þar sem eru lifandi upptökur af tveimur lögum af Kvöldvöku og Ölduslóð ásamt nýju lagi, sem verður á næstu sólóplötu, en einnig "In stiller nacht", gamalt sígilt þýskt þjóðlag í útsetningu Johannesar Brahms.

Þeir sem styðja við verkefnið fá árituð eintök af plötunum og geta líka fengið árituð eintök af nýju plakatslistaverki frá Dagbjörtu Lilju, dóttur minni.
Þeir sem leggja mikið í verkefnið fá upprunalegu málverkin sem verða að plötuforsíðunum, árituð af Dagbjörtu Lilju.
Rausnarlegustu stuðningsaðilarnir eiga jafnvel von á stofutónleikum frá Svavari Knúti við fyrsta hentugleik.

Við erum óskaplega þakklát fyrir stuðning ykkar við þetta verkefni. Það er dýrt og mikil áhætta að pressa vínyl og ykkar hjálp í að láta þetta gerast er afskaplega vel þegin! :D

Var ekki kominn tími?
