LAMBERT SHARES “TEGEL” – OUT TODAY
FROM HIS FORTHCOMING EP, ALONE II (JULY 3RD, MERCURY KX)
01 MAY 2020 (TORONTO, ON) - Following up his stunning True album of last year, Berlin-based composer and pianist Lambert is set to release an exquisite new EP Alone II via Mercury KX on July 3rd. Listen to "Tegel" from the forthcoming EP here, it is inspired by his favourite airport, as Lambert explains:
“We all know we have to stop flying around the globe. For sure it is not good for our dear planet and you end up buying too expensive coffees on too cheap flights. There is an error in the system, but if we stop with all that now, could we please agree to reconstruct my favourite airport Tegel in something we can use in the future. It is such a nice, cosy (and ugly) place. I don’t ever want to miss it.”
Lambert recently worked with up and coming film director Tom Oxenham to create “Becoming Lambert’, a mockumentary short film, incorporating music from his stunning album True (out now on Mercury KX). Watch the Mockumentary here.
Lambert is a singular talent whose bold vision and compositional flair is informed as much by pop music and wider culture as it is by any classical repertoire. From 2017’s stunning Sweet Apocalypse, a masterful collection of orchestral works concerned with locating moments of beauty amid the dystopian future humanity is fast racing towards, to last year’s True album and the haunting, delicate Alone EP, Lambert has created his own, spellbinding sonic language that stirs the soul and inspires the mind. By turns hypnotic, sombre, and enchanting, he excels at creating moods and mesmerising the listener; a deep sense of drama often gives way to an enigmatic playfulness, colourful melodies skipping lightly through his songs.
