Iceland’s Eliza Newman Releases New Single

Icelandic singer-songwriter Eliza Geirsdóttir Newman released a new single this week containing the songs “Change My Name” and “Return To Me,” available in stores in the UK and in digital form. The songs are from her latest album Empire Fall.

Newman has enjoyed good reviews by the British media, including music magazine Losing Today calling “Change My Name,” “In a word – stunning. […] Not wishing to jump the gun by saying so early in the year the best single of 2008 that would of course be a churlish thing of folly that said though certainly without doubt the best single to have graced these pages since […] the tail end of last year.”

To promote her new single, Newman and her band played two concerts in Oxford and London last weekend. The Oxford concert was recorded for radio broadcast. “Change My Name” and “Return To Me” are being played regularly on European radio stations.

A new video to “Return To Me” was recently premiered. It is a digital cartoon written and directed by Icelandic animators Marta María and Kristín Elva.
