Danish artist Agnes Obel will on 30 Sep follow her first flight into LP-making – 2011′s ‘Philharmonics’ – with a new set titled ‘Aventine’ (Aventine being one of the seven hills on which ancient Rome was built).

Obel has released several extra ‘glimpses’ into ‘Avantine’ since sharing its trailer earlier in the year, this scored by an unnamed track featuring the same moth-winged pianos and cold, sylvan voice that were her calling cards circa ‘Philharmonics’ singles like ‘Riverside’ and ‘Just So’. Each lasts less than a minute, which is kind of irritating, like looking into a locked garden. But still, it seems a very beautiful garden all the same, and I can’t wait to get in.

Watch all the ‘Avantine’ teasers in a playlist again, and again, here:
