Oscar-winner Marketa Irglova of The Swell Season is releasing her second solo album, Muna, on September 23rd. Irglova now lives in Iceland, which served as inspiration for the new album.

“I fell in love with it then and was sad to leave, although I knew someday something would bring me back,” she says, via press release. “I am inspired by the open space, the wilderness of the nature, the strong energy coming from the land. There is a harmony, a balance, something that allows for a freer flow of creativity. It is easier to be one with oneself and one with everything and everyone around. This makes for better art, in my opinion.”

Muna was produced by Sturla Mio Thorisson, and features full string and choral arrangements. Also contributing are Rob Bochnik of The Frames, Iranian vocalist Aida Shahghasemi, and Irglova’s sister Zuzi on vocals.

Irglova won an Oscar in 2008 with The Swell Season for their performance of the song “Falling Slowly” in the musical Once. Following the release of Muna, Irglova will embark on a North American tour. Dates are below, as well as the new song “This Right Here” from Muna.
