Islander, which reached #1 in Norway earlier this year, is Bernhoft's third full-length album as a solo artist, following 2008's Ceramik City Chronicles and 2011's Solidarity Breaks, featuring singles "Cmon Talk" and "Choices" which have nearly 7 million YouTube views between them. Islander was recorded on England's Isle of Wight and produced by Paul Butler (Michael Kiwanuka, Devendra Banhart). The video for "Come Around" recently premiered on SPIN, watch it here.

Bernhoft is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist and composer Jarle Bernhoft. Norway-born and New York-based, Bernhoft has become notorious for his intricate and complex live performances, built around Bernhoft himself as a looping one-man-band.
