Sondre Lerche Announces Live Album, Vinyl Releases, Tour

In celebration of Sondre Lerche’s 30th birthday in September, the Norwegian-born artist will be releasing a new live album, titled Bootlegs, on Sept. 4. Lerche discusses the album in a press release: “For 12 years I’ve had to endure the constant disappointment of hearing professional multi-track live recordings of my shows … This was the first time I had actually felt excited upon hearing a recording of one of my shows … The crowd is enthusiastic but easily distracted and rowdy; it’s a Saturday night in Norway.”

The birthday bash continues as Mona Records will press Lerche’s first 4 albums on vinyl for the first time. These records will also include bonus tracks and outtakes. A U.S. tour is also planned in support of the release.
