Ørjan Nilsen – Prism – Having been a mainstay in the electronic music scene for what seems like an eternity, Ørjan Nilsen is a man whose musical vision knows no equal. By choosing his own path to success rather than the one already carved out by others, he secured himself a signature sound that’s known and loved across the globe. And that trademark brand – those brilliant colors of sound The Viking calls his own – shines through in the first part of Prism, his third artist album, released today on Armada Music.
Following debut album In My Opinion and its successor ‘No Saint Out Of Me,’ Prism sees Ørjan Nilsen combine his beloved sound with new musical flourishes. Harboring known favorites such as ‘Iconic,’ ‘Drowning‘ and a new vocal version of ‘Hi There Radio‘ as well as fresh, occasionally pop-scented material that includes productions such as ‘Million Miles Away,’ ‘Navigator,’ ‘In a Thousand Ways‘ and ‘Nothing Here But Love,’ Prism shows how one man’s vision can take on many different forms.
Additionally, Prism also sees frequent collaborator Mike James play a big part in many of the album’s singles, co-writing and/or singing on cuts such as ‘Hi There Radio,’ ‘In A Thousand Ways‘ featuring Rykka and ‘Nothing Here But Love.’ The Canadian singer-songwriter and Ørjan Nilsen struck up an amazing friendship after first working together, which is evidently paying off big time with every ensuing link-up.
