Entleiber One sweet spell of an album. Deeply enchanting and atmospheric, and all that created by Jonathan's lovely voice and an acoustic guitar, sometimes a piano. Magical interludes. Music to forget about the world and discover a hidden one instead. A phantastic journey. Favorite track: The Roses.

Nickie Harte Kelly Understated acoustic offering from this Swedish artist more known for his forays in the gothic gloom oeuvre. Stunningly haunting and spare, Hultén also is a talented illustrator, as the art nouveau inspired cover art proves. Favourite Track: A Dance in the Road Favorite track: A Dance In The Road.

DEBUT ALBUM FROM THE ENIGMATIC SWEDISH GRAMMY-WINNING SONGWRITER JONATHAN HULTÉN – CHANTS FROM ANOTHER PLACE

The musical inspiration for singer/songwriter JONATHAN HULTÉN’s debut album Chants From Another Place is drawn from a capella folk and church choir compositions. Throughout the album, tales are weaved and musical influences collide as HULTÉN draws comparisons to artists including Nick Drake, Sufjan Stevens and Fleet Foxes, as well as traditional folk artists Bert Jansch & John Martyn right through to his contemporaries in Anna Ternheim, Chelsea Wolfe & Hexvessel.

HULTÉN has created a deeply reflective and personal world that he invites listeners to explore. Recorded solely by HULTÉN in his studio in Stockholm, Sweden, the twelve compositions that make up Chants From Another Place were mixed by Ola Ersfjord from Cuervo Recording Service in Madrid, Spain.

The album’s debut single due for release in January, ‘The Mountain’ is a potent yet minimalistic ode to loss and hope, accompanied by a video produced and animated by HULTÉN himself, and takes influence from Tolkien, Tove Jansson and art nouveau illustrator Aubrey Beardsley.

The cover art is a self-penned portrait, reflecting the melancholy found within the songs on the album and an insight into HULTÉN’s unique persona.

HULTÉN says that: “Chants From Another Place will thematically take you through landscapes of ecstasy, passing mountains of death and rebirth, sailing seas of adventure, traversing wastelands of despair and forests of myth. It is an inward journey and only time can tell which places will be visited under its duration. It is a tale of spiritual death and rebirth.”
