In 2018, audiovisual pioneer and subcultural phenomenon ionnalee delivered he r
first solo-album and feature film 'EVERYONE AFRAID TO BE FORGOTTEN', after
enchanting an international audience with her award winning, modern folklore
tales through the mixed media project and Youtube mystery iamamiwhoami for
almost a decade. All through her own force and label.
The Swedish singer, songwriter, producer, and director’s acclaimed ‘debut’ as
ionnalee, was subsequently followed by a world-tour; funded alongside her fans
through Kickstarter in just 5 days. The hugely successful tour sold-out dates
across Europe, US, and Latin-America — Brazil being one of the places where
ionnalee finally got to face her audience live for the first time in her career.
"As the tour finally happened, the audience response knocked me off my feet. It
became a real game-changer for me. After my last album was made, there was no
plan to go back into the studio. I was exhausted and have struggled with health
and motivation to even continue working as an artist. But in between touring I
found myself alone in my studio at every given chance, so inspired from that
whole synergy I experienced with the audience on stage, that this natural flow
happened, and I wanted to give back to them.’
The result is a new full-length album, ‘REMEMBER THE FUTURE’ — released May 31
on her label To whom it may concern. "It’s a hopeful visionary story of daring
to dream, and shooting for the stars, despite the paradoxical underlying chafing
dystopia that we are destroying our planet", says ionnalee.
"To me, the album has a kinetic energy. I felt much more confident and free when
producing it, both as an artist and a producer.”
‘REMEMBER THE FUTURE’ is produced by ionnalee and also features contribution s
from her long time collaborator Claes Björklund (iamamiwhoami) and is mixed by
Johannes Berglund (Fever Ray).
The first lush disco single ‘OPEN SEA’ (Feb 8) comes with a video directed by
ionnalee and cinematographer John Strandh (iamamiwhoami) and is in her own words
in the ‘low fi sci fi’ genre.
ionnalee recently remixed Moby’s single ‘The ceremony of innocence’, which was
released dec 31 2018 on Mute records, as well as being the masthead of
Röyksopp’s live shows for the past three years.
Her experimental project iamamiwhoami has since 2009 gathered an enormous
international following to their ongoing cinematic music series. ionnalee has
with her projects independently produced a total of 6 musical albums and 2
online live concert installations, earning 53 million views on YouTube to date.
