Sondre Lerche

September 8, 2009 will see the release of Sondre Lerche's new album 'Heartbeat Radio,' his debut for Rounder Records and the start of an ambitious new chapter for the widely praised singer. The twelve-track collection of expansive, orchestral pop will be Lerche's first release since 2007's soundtrack for 'Dan in Real Life,' his best-selling album to date.

'Heartbeat Radio' was produced by Lerche with Kato Ådland and recorded in Lerche's hometown of Bergen, Norway, and his newly adopted home of Brooklyn, NY. The album was mixed by Joe Chicarelli (White Stripes, My Morning Jacket, The Shins) and features string and horn arrangements by Sean O'Hagan (High Llamas)....

....Sondre Lerche will tour the US extensively in September and Europe in October. Specific dates will be announced soon. [PR]

A few of those September dates have been announced, and not surprisingly, there are two in NYC that fall right around the date of the album release. Tickets for shows at Bowery Ballroom (Sept 8) and Music Hall of Williamsburg (Sept 9) go on AmEx presale today at noon, and then regular sale Friday at noon. Listen to a new track at MySpace. All dates and the new album track list below...
