The Icelandic artist's contribution to the mix series will come out in June.
The BAFTA-winning multi-intrumentalist and producer is known for a hybrid sound that fuses classical and electronic music, as heard on his solo work and as Kiasmos alongside Janus Rasmussen. (He won the 2014 award for scoring British TV series Broadchurch.) The 18-track mix features music from Jamie xx, Jai Paul, Koreless and James Blake, as well as three exclusive productions of his own and a cover of Destiny Child's R&B classic "Say My Name." There's also a cameo from acclaimed British actor David Tennant, who closes out the CD with a reading.
"When I was asked to do the next instalment of the Late Night Tales series I thought 'This will be fun and easy, only a couple of days work. No problem!" Says Arnalds. "Six months later, I was still pulling my hair out in some kind of quest to make the perfect mix. I decided to approach the mix in a similar way as I would one of my scores. This is the soundtrack of my life."
