The gifted composer and musician has been in negotiations with the label, which also has fellow Icelanders Of Monsters And Men on its roster, since April. Arnalds told the newspaper Fréttablaðið: “I have my special needs as an artist and don’t want to sacrifice anything. It worked out in the end."

Congratulations Ólafur !
