Seventy piece orchestra. Sixty minutes of musical nirvana. No, this is not your mind’s interpretation of Nicki Minaj’s newest video on a crazy trip, this is today’s reality—thanks to Oh Land. Tune into DR (think Denmark’s very own Radio 1), at 3 P.M. EST to catch the livestream of Nanna getting both classic and electronic.
At age 29, Nanna Øland Fabricius, the brains and beauty behind Oh Land, released her first album after a career-ending ballet injury. Several albums later and a stage shared with the likes of Sia and Katy Perry, Nanna is ready to take on music in a much grander way:
“I’ve been working the past half year on arranging my music for symphony orchestra with my dad who is a composer. These concerts are sort of like returning to my roots and my musical background which was completely classical. I always felt like I didn’t completely fit in to the family by not becoming a classical musician like them and now I am bringing my music into their world and mixing the two. It’s super exciting and completely overwhelming standing on stage with a back up band of 100 people. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that me and my band are completely thrilled about.”
Stream it now, thank the universe it is Friday, and get spiritual with it.
