I have a favourite Icelandic singer songwriter (apart from myself, obviously (it’s important to love yourself (in a platonic, artistic way, I mean))). His name is Svavar Knútur, and he happens to be a wonderful friend.
Last year, for his birthday, Svavar invited a bunch of artists to cover his songs, and put on a show. I was lucky enough to be invited, and I chose a lovely, sad song called Your Love Was Death To Me. I finally received a recording of it, and wanted to share it with you guys. I hope you enjoy it. (Note: There’s a story in Icelandic in the beginning. I start playing the song after about a minute.)
