One­track mind

Elle (Canada) - - Radar -

Dan­ish melan­choly-melody maker Agnes Obel gives us the be­hind-the-mu­sic scoop on our favourite track from her just-out al­bum, Cit­i­zen of Glass: “I worked with the theme of ‘trans­parency’ on this al­bum, and ‘It’s Hap­pen­ing Again’ is about be­ing open about some­thing you’re nor­mally not. For me, I have these pe­ri­ods in my life where it’s like a dark cloud comes in and the next few weeks are not so great. I know it goes away again, so I wanted the song to sound sort of cycli­cal: calm in the be­gin­ning with the pi­ano and then darker and loose and then go­ing back to the beau­ti­ful parts, be­cause that’s how I ex­pe­ri­ence it.”
