Nils Frahm has announced a new album, All Memory, and shared a trailer for it. All Memory is due out January 28, 2018 via Erased Tapes. It's the German musician's seventh album and he built a brand new studio in Berlin to record it. He also has some 2018 North American tour dates in the works. Below is the album trailer, followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as the tour dates.

Frahm had this to say about the album in a press release: "In the process of completion, any album not only reveals what it has become but, maybe more importantly, what it hasn't become. All Melody was imagined to be so many things over time and it has been a whole lot, but never exactly what I planned it to be. I wanted to hear beautiful drums, drums I've never seen or heard before, accompanied by human voices, girls, and boys. They would sing a song from this very world and it would sound like it was from a different space. I heard a synthesizer which sounds like a harmonium playing the All Melody, melting together with a line of a harmonium sounding like a synthesizer. My pipe organ would turn into a drum machine, while my drum machine would sound like an orchestra of breathy flutes. I would turn my piano into my very voice, and any voice into a ringing string. The music I hear inside me will never end up on a record, as it seems I can only play it for myself. This record includes what I think sticks out and describes my recent musical discoveries in the best possible way I could imagine."
