Ásgeir On World Cafe

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

One in 10 people in Iceland own singer-songwriter Ásgeir's first album — the fastest-selling debut in the country's history. Its lyrics are all in Icelandic, and written by Ásgeir's father. But for the U.S. release, singer-songwriter John Grant fashioned English lyrics to go with Ásgeir's melodies.

Here, Ásgeir sings live in the World Cafe studios, a performance we originally aired on Feb. 4, 2014.
