Shortly before his untimely passing, Jóhann Jóhannsson invited his friends A Winged Victory for the Sullen (Dustin O’Halloran and Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie) to rework a piece from his inaugural album Englabörn.
“I loved Jóhann as a person and deeply admired his music. It meant so much to give this remix something special, and we were pleased when he told us how much he loved our track. His music always pushed me to search for unique and uncharted paths and I’ll be forever grateful. I will miss him tremendously.”
– Dustin O’Halloran
