I approached some friends of mine to help me work on a cover of Hyperballad to celebrate the anniversarycomposer Luke Howard and producer Tim Shiel. We emerged with two very beautiful versions, says Abraham.I love how Lukes lush string arrangement, with his subtle electronic instrumentation, highlights the timelessness of Bjrks writing and that Tims remix shows how compelling and fresh the song feels in todays musical landscape.Its daunting to cover such a celebrated work, but here we are with the utmost respect, and we hope you like it.
Abrahams debut album, Sirens, is out March 4 on Secretly Canadian. Preorder the album on all physical formats here and digitally via iTunes here. Zane Lowe recently premiered the debut single You And Me on Beats 1, praising his Beautiful songs from a debut album [written] whilst working in a hospital.

Abraham recorded and produced Sirens in Melbourne with the help of friends and longtime collaborators Jono Steer and Leigh Fisher. The album also features a collaboration with Sara Bareilles, who Abraham connected online and struck up a friendship with several years ago, on This Is On Me as well as additional production from Gotyes Wally De Backer on Speak.
