Of Monsters and Men has shared a previously unreleased song called “Phantom.”
The track, which vocalist Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir first wrote at age 16 while growing up in Iceland, is included on the newly released 10th anniversary reissue of Of Monsters and Men’s 2011 debut album, My Head Is an Animal.
“It was one of those songs that belonged to an era before the band but also these first few years that the band was forming and finding our sound,” Nanna says of “Phantom.”
“We never recorded it but it was always very important to our history and believe it was patiently waiting all these years,” she adds. “I’m so incredibly happy this song finally found a home and that we get to share it with you!”
The My Head Is an Animal reissue is out today. It also includes another previously unreleased song called “Sugar in a Bowl.”
Of Monsters and Men will keep the 10th anniversary celebration going with a batch of special concerts in Iceland in November. Streams of the shows will be available to watch in December.
