Nils Frahm wird im Januar 2018 sein nun schon siebentes Studio Album auf Erased Tapes veröffentlichen. „All Melody“ wird es heißen und mit 12 Kompositionen kommen. Aufgenommen wurde es im Saal 3 der Funkhaus Studios Berlin, welchen Frahm dafür gänzlich für seine Zwecke anpassen konnte.
“In the process of completion, any album not only reveals what it has become but, maybe more importantly, what it hasn’t become. All Melody was imagined to be so many things over time and it has been a whole lot, but never exactly what I planned it to be. I wanted to hear beautiful drums, drums I’ve never seen or heard before, accompanied by human voices, girls, and boys. They would sing a song from this very world and it would sound like it was from a different space. I heard a synthesiser which sounds like a harmonium playing the All Melody, melting together with a line of a harmonium sounding like a synthesiser. My pipe organ would turn into a drum machine, while my drum machine would sound like an orchestra of breathy flutes. I would turn my piano into my very voice, and any voice into a ringing string. The music I hear inside me will never end up on a record, as it seems I can only play it for myself. This record includes what I think sticks out and describes my recent musical discoveries in the best possible way I could imagine.”
