Leprous vocalist Einar Solberg will unveil their debut solo album this spring.
16 is slated to be released on June 2 via Insideoutmusic. A new single from the album released today titled “A Beautiful Life” comes with a music video directed by Elena Sihida, which can be seen below.
Solberg said this about the album’s title:
“It’s called 16 because that’s when the first really, really bad things started happening to me in life. From 16 to 19, there were a lot of very life-defining moments that happened to me, and that changed me. That’s when I kind of lost my innocence and I started realising that life is serious and bad [stuff] can happen. A lot of pretty drastic things happened within those three years. But this album is not only about the bad things. It’s also about some of the career-defining moments, like the moment I started playing with the band and began to find a community to belong to. Emotionally, I’m a bit of everything, so it covers the entire emotional spectrum!”
“A Beautiful Life” is out on digital services right now.
Solberg will perform their solo material at the Prognosis Festival on April 15. More information about the event can be found here.
