The project was finished by Jóhannsson before his death and will be released via Deutsche Grammophon in March.
The Icelandic composer wrapped up the Englabörn reissue project just before his untimely death at age 48 earlier this month. The package will feature the original album remastered, as well as new "variations" remixed by other artists and Jóhannsson himself.
Englabörn came out back in 2002 through Touch, before receiving a wider release via 4AD in 2007. This time, it'll come out through Deutsche Grammophon, who announced the release in a tweet. There's no word on a tracklist or exactly which other artists are involved yet, though RA has reached out to the label for comment.
