Shares new single "Paper Thin"
New album 'Deep Snow' coming November 23th
‘Paper Thin’, the new single from the forthcoming album by Simon Lynge, is out world-wide on 9th November via Integrity Records/Songcrafter Music.
‘Deep Snow’, the fourth album by the Greenlandic-Scandinavian singer-songwriter, will be released two weeks later on 23rd November.
Earlier this year, Simon and long-time friend and musical collaborator Richard Lobb isolated themselves in a secluded house owned by a travelling circus clown in the green hills of Trallong, Wales, to record the new album, later to be caressed to completion in the eclectic atmosphere of Narcissus Studios in London.
With an Inuit father & Danish mother, Simon grew up as a shepherd boy in a remote village out on the Greenland tundra before moving to Denmark as a teenager to study music. Though his father is an acclaimed accordion player in Greenland, Simon was inspired to start writing songs by the music of Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Simon & Garfunkel and Crosby Stills & Nash.
Growing up in a sparsely-populated Greenland village and later enduring some harsh Danish winters have informed both Simon’s philosophy and his song-writing:
“When the darkness of winter and the world wears the spirit out, Paper Thin comes from that place of stress and rumination. It's a slow moving molasses state of emotional fiction, where dreams seem completely out of reach. But we can help each other, we can hold each other … gently.”
Now dividing his time between America’s Pacific Northwest, Scandinavia & the UK, Simon Lynge is no stranger to the British media, having appeared on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC Radio London, BBC1 Breakfast TV & Sky News and had great reviews of previous releases from the UK & international press.
