'into the great wide yonder' follows trentemoller's outstanding previous works: his award-winning 2006 debut, 'the last resort', as well as multiple singles, eps, and remixes, including double-album 'the trentemoller chronicles'; and harbour boat trips 01: copenhagen, trentemoller's first-ever mix cd. a pioneer of fusing dark dub and electronica with accessible melodies, trentemoller's past releases have demonstrated his remarkable gift for the dark, signature scandinavian electro sound that have taken him around the world. 'into the great wide yonder' is more than just a progression on the theme; it's a great leap forward. the album offers a wealth of brilliant melodies and musical ideas, and melds disparate and far-reaching sounds, rhythms, and genres. it uses many different instruments including electronic and acoustic guitars, strings, theremin, a bass mandolin and electronics with a playful ease that is seldomly heard. the first single of the album, the beautifully tender 'sycamore feeling', features danish singer-songwriter marie fisker, and the album includes other collaborations with english artist fyfe dangerfield (from the guillemots) and singers solveig sandnes and josephine philip (from the debuting danish indie girl-duo darkness falls).
