Singer/Songwriter and Faroese near legend Teitur returns with his first single in nearly 5 years, with a song called “Sara”, from his long awaited forthcoming album, “I Want To Be Kind“.
The song and soon to be released album, were recorded in the USA in New York, with longtime friend Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman) producing, who has worked with Sufjan Stevens/Martha Wainwright/Glen Hansard and many others; and it was recorded at the legendary Reservoir Studios (where Bowie/Lou Reed/Nile Rodgers have recorded) in New York, with Patrick Dillet mixing.
The song was co-written by Teitur with German singer Judith Holofernes, well known front woman of Rock/Pop band Wir Sind Helden, who were huge in Germany in the period 2002-10. Teitur and Judith were brought together when she started performing live a German version of Teitur’s song “Catherine The Waitress”, re-imagined as “Jonathan Der Kellner”, and Teitur’s manager contacted her to find out the story as to why, and got the two together to see what music might happen. They became fast friends and Teitur went on to co-write and co-produce Judith’s 2017 top 15 German album “Ich Bin Das Chaos”, as well as writing more songs together, of which Teitur’s new single Sara, is one..
Since releasing his last album, Story Music, in 2013, Teitur has, amongst other things, performed at the famous Ted Talk conference in North America, written 8 songs for a new Danish Hymn Book published last year and performed some for the Queen of Denmark; released a Contemporary Classical album “Confessions” with Classical wunderkind Nico Muhly in 2016, together recently selling out the 1400 Capacity Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg…and much more…
