It has been a long wait for us; it took Janssen more than three years to make this new record “Cousins”.
Having travelled all over the world and collaborating with artists like Marla Hansen (Sufjan Stevens, The National), Eiríkur Orri Ólafsson (Sigur Rós) and Chris Coady (Beach House, Future Islands), the album feels surprisingly personal.
Although Janssen is best known for his melancholic, intimate folk songs, this new album sounds a lot brighter and bigger. Lyrically Kim Janssen collected memories of his youth, that he spent moving from country to country in Asia.
