Agnes Obel – Golden Green

Danish singer-songwriter Agnes Obel is going to release her third album “Citizen of Glass” on October 21 via Play It Again Sam. After the first single “Familiar”, here is the video for the second track taken from the LP: “Golden Green”.

Featuring vocals, vibraphone, piano and percussion, Golden Green is about “how the mind can develop stories and change reality whilst under the influence of envy,” says Obel. “In a sense it is a negative longing with a creative potential for good and/or bad – novels are written in the mind from this perspective. The song is inspired by the book ‘Envy’ from 1927 by the novelist Yuri Olesha.”
