Einar Solberg announces official release of ‘The Congregation Acoustic’

Leprous frontman Einar Solberg released his debut solo album ‘16’ earlier this year. But back at the beginning of 2022, he took on an entirely different solo endeavour. For a special live streamed performance, he reinterpreted the Leprous album ‘The Congregation’ in full, just piano and voice. Now that performance will see an official audio release as ‘The Congregation Acoustic’ on the 16th February 2024.

‘The Congregation Acoustic’ will be released as a Ltd CD Digipak, Limited Gatefold 180g Black 2LP & as Digital Album. The cover artwork was shot by Elena Sihida. Pre-order now here: https://einarsolberg-artist.lnk.to/TheCongregationAcoustic-Live

Einar comments of the release: “I’m both super excited but also kind of terrified for me to release this live version of “The Congregation”. It’s raw and unedited and exactly how I did it on my livestream. Usually all musicians these days (myself included) are used to fixIng stuff in post-production, but on this one we’ve done nothing! I think it’s cool sometimes to dare to show a more fragile and less “perfect” side of yourself. “The Congregation” is probably the least suitable album we’ve ever done to make an acoustic version of, but I think it turned out surprisingly OK!”
