Vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. 2019 release. This album follows high-profile Best Single and Newcomer of The Year wins at his home country's Icelandic Music Awards, as well as mounting critical attention in the United States. Across The Borders was self-produced and completely written by Júníus Meyvant, with engineering and mixing done by Guðmundur Kristinn Jónsson (Ásgeir, Erlend Oye, Hjálmar) at the renowned Hljóðriti Studio on the outskirts of Reykjavík. The richly orchestrated album embraces a wide palette of sounds and is awash with soulful, charming melodies. Throughout the eleven tracks, the natural warmth of his unmistakeable vocals are matched and heightened by a full string section and brass ensemble, creating a hearty wall of blissful sound.
