Sondre Lerche Announces New Album 'Patience'

Sondre Lerche has announced plans for a brand new album titled Patience. Recording in his home country Norway, Patience was inspired by running marathons and Lerche's love of ambient music. The record will officially arrive on June 5. 

In addition to his announcement, Lerche has also shared the record's first single "You Are Not Who I Thought I Was" alongside its "hot and heavy" Jon Danovic-directed music video. 

Here's what he had to say about the visual effort:

I had this idea that a good place to start would be to go into the woods with a shovel and shoot some stuff wearing that red coat. I kept thinking of the Tom Waits song that goes: "what's he building in there?" Like, what's he digging for up there? Ideas ballooned: what if there were more versions up there, spying on a perceived authentic self? What if they always find him, no matter where he goes? Basically an existential version of the "Two Way Monologue" video, I realize now in retrospect.

Patience follows the release of Lerche's 2017 record Pleasure.
