Agnes Obel is a Danish singer/songwriter based in Berlin. She is releasing her third album ‘Citizen of Glass’ this week and goes on tour this month. She performs in Admiralspalast in Berlin on November 14.
Agnes explains the inspiration for the title Citizen of Glass…
“The title comes from the German concept of the gläserner bürger, the human or glass citizen… There’s an increasing sense in this world that you have to make yourself a bit of glass. To be willing to open up, use yourself as material, and not just if you’re an artist or a musician. I worked with the title from the very beginning to push myself to do new things. As an album, it feels bigger to me, a lot bigger.”
