Nils Frahm will release his new album, All Encores, via Erased Tapes, made up of three EPs: Encores 1, Encores 2, and Encores 3. 

On the heels of his 2018 All Melody LP, Frahm released two EPs featuring tracks that didn't quite make the album cut. Encores 1 focused on an acoustic pallet of sounds with solo piano and harmonium at the core, and Encores 2 explored more ambient landscapes. He's now announced the third instalment, Encores 3, featuring the song "All Armed." The EP will be available on September 20. 

Erased Tapes will then release a collection of all three of the Encores EPs on one comprehensive album entitled All Encores, which will be out October 18. 

Frahm explains: "The idea behind All Encores is one we had from before All Melody; to separate releases each with their own distinct musical style and theme, perhaps even as a triple album. But All Melody became larger than itself and took over any initial concepts. I think the idea of All Encores is like musical islands that compliment All Melody."

Encores 3 EP lands September 20, with All Encores LP following on October 18. Meanwhile, you can stream "All Armed" from the new EP below.
