Deutsche Grammophon is set to release 'Retrospective I', a deluxe hardcover book edition with a CD box set featuring seven of Jóhann's early works including 'The Miners' Hymns', 'Copenhagen Dreams', 'Virðulegu Forsetar' and a previously unreleased score 'White Black Boy'. It's the first part of a two-volume release with 'Retrospective II' being released in 2020.
To celebrate the release of 'Retrospective I', producer Áine Devaney and filmmaker Blair Alexander traced Jóhann's roots back to his home town of Reykjavík, Iceland to speak to some of the people who knew him best. It's a rare and insightful glimpse at the places and stories that shaped the person who later became the composer we now know as Jóhann Jóhannsson.
