VIDEO: David Tennant Reads Undone From Ólafur Arnalds' Late Night Tales



If you haven't had a chance to hear the spoken word track that David Tennant contributed last year to the Ólafur Arnalds curated compilation album Late Night Tales, it is now available to hear on YouTube. David's reading of the Anam Sufi story Undone closes the set of nocturnal mixes and moods. 



The Late Night Tales is a series of artist-selected compilations, including exclusive remixes and spoken word tracks for the ultimate late night mix. Since 2001, a diverse mix of artists has taken part, including Arctic Monkeys, MGMT, Metronomy and Fatboy Slim. Standing at the intersection where techno meets classical music, Ólafur Arnalds, the composer of the BAFTA-winning soundtrack to Broadchurch, directs his own Late Night Tales. The label said of his release:

Arnalds’ music has a quietude that seems perfectly apposite and that’s evident here as each song drifts like an autumn wind towards the next.
Arnalds has enlisted the help of a few of his countrymen for the journey out west – electronic bands Samaris and Hjaltalín – and just as his records manage to combine the experimentalism and adventure of electronic music with a classical sensibility, here he weaves them perfectly, using tracks like Koreless’ brilliant post-dubstep ‘Last Remnants’ alongside the enigmatic brilliance of Jai Paul. It’s a perfect musical landscape that is eerie yet beautiful, as on Odesza’s ‘How Did I Get Here’.
As if Ólafur wasn’t spoiling us enough, he offers up three exclusives: his own ‘Kinesthesia I’ and ‘RGB’ and ‘Orgoned’ by his techno side project Kiasmos. Alongside that we have the obligatory cover version (Destiny’s Child’s ‘Say My Name’) and also a Late Night Tales debut for David Tennant, reading a story by Anam Sufi, with whom Ólafur worked on Broadchurch.
