Low Roar, the performing name of Ryan Karazija, has announced the release of new album ‘Once in a Long, Long While’.
In celebration of the upcoming album, he has released its first single ‘Bones’, a duet with Icelandic artist Jófríður Ákadóttir. The single is available to hear below.
The performer’s third album has been long awaited, with his first self-titled album recorded in his kitchen in Iceland in 2010. The album was followed up by critically acclaimed ‘0‘ in 2014, which was toured across festivals such as ATP, The Great Escape, Eurosonic and more.

‘Once in a Long, Long While’ follows up from Karazija‘s travels through 2016, spending time everywhere from Iceland to Mexico, before finally settling in Warsaw.
Ryan says of the experience of putting together his third album while traveling: “I was alone for most of the process. There were a lot of great things that happened, and there were a lot of bad things that happened. There were really beautiful moments like the birth of my nephew, and there were really hard moments as I dealt with relationship changes. It helped to get it all out. I don’t think I would’ve made the same record if I was in one place.”

The album was wrapped up in a London studio and finalised with Andrew Scheps (producer/mixer for acts such as Adele and Red Hot Chilli Peppers).
