Featuring an almost entirely unreleased collection of solo piano recordings spanning 12 years, this double album provides a delicately beautiful, contemplative space in which we can stop time and start to breathe.

The collection gathers together 23 solo piano tracks recorded between 2009 and 2021, almost all hitherto unreleased but, for one reason or another, omitted from previous albums and projects. Neither quite a new LP nor exactly a compilation, it offers “an anatomy of all my ways of thinking musically and playing,” Frahm says, adding with a smile, “Maybe I could say it’s an album I worked on for twelve years, and finally I have enough material?”
