Sondre Lerche Releases First Live Album

Tiffany Wilhelm
Today, Norwegian musician Sondre Lerche released Bootlegs, his first-ever live album. This raw collection of songs captured in Norway and various venues in Brooklyn, New York, is streaming now.

Sondre's career started young, and from the very beginning his albums have been love letters to the craft of songwriting. His ceaseless ambition has led him down many paths - he's been a jazz bandleader, a punk howler, a would-be Springsteen, and a transatlantic teen idol. Over the years, he has caught the attention of Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, NPR, and countless others, who have praised him as one of this generation's most prolific singer-songwriters.

Bootlegs won’t be the only release for Sondre this year. His first four albums - Faces Down, Two-Way Monologue, Duper Sessions and Phantom Punch – are all being pressed on vinyl for the first time. These limited edition collectables will include bonus tracks and outtakes, with release set for October 2nd. Be sure to secure yours via pre-order!

A four-week national tour will kick off tomorrow in New York City, and hits Cleveland September 12 at the Beachland Ballroom. Out of town? View a full list of tour dates here.
