JFDR Announces New Album ‘Museum’, Shares Video for New Song

    JFDR – the project of Icelandic singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jófríður Ákadóttir – has announced her third studio album. Museum is due for release on April 28 via her new label home, Houndstooth. It will include the previously shared single ‘The Orchid’, as well as a new track, ‘Spectator’. Check out its accompanying video below, along with the album’s cover art and tracklist.

    “‘Spectator’ is an anthem for the codependent, a lullaby for the ones slightly codependent and for those who have never felt it; a mirror into the raw thought process of someone deep in the trenches of it,” JFDR explained in a statement. “The video was made with my good friend Timothee Lambrecq, and the unmissable support from my husband Josh Wilkinson and old bandmate Áslaug Magnúsdóttir. The clouds represent thoughts, and getting swallowed by a big cloud is symbolic of the thoughts that can overtake you, when you lose your ground. I also wanted to reference the album and its artwork that centers around a statue, representing energy frozen in time. I truly hope this song makes someone feel seen. It can take a long time to learn to navigate big emotions, whether they’re your own or others’. I was feeling it at the time.”
