Listen: Sondre Lerche’s lush new song “Sentimentalist”

On September 23rd, Sondre Lerche returns with his seventh album, Please, via his own imprint, Mona Records. Written shortly after he and his wife filed for divorce, the 10-track effort is a departure for the Norwegian singer-songwriter, who trades in most of his signature lighthearted pop rock for moodier, denser arrangements inspired by heartbreak and loss.

Already we’ve heard Lerche “ventilate anger and frustration” on the excellent lead single “Bad Law”. Now, he’s back with “Sentimentalist”, a number filled to the brim with not only profound feeling, but a musical accompaniment that’s equal parts dreamy and striking. If you thought you knew what Lerche was capable of, this track is a must-hear all the way through to the piercing, noise-addled outro.
