Longest record deal in Icelandic history

By Iceland Review

Icelandic musician Bubbi Morthens signed a 10-record contract with publisher SENA, the longest record deal in Icelandic history. This was announced last Sunday.

The records will be published in a period of 10-15 years under the label of Blindsker, a record label specifically created for this deal. Fréttabladid reports.

Blindsker is the name of Morthens’ most famous song and was also the name of a documentary featuring the Icelandic pop star.

Morthens is one of Iceland’s most renowned and controversial singer-songwriters and was by many considered a rebel in his younger years. He often sings about the underdogs of the Icelandic community.

At the press conference on Sunday, Morthens also introduced the release of a double CD and a DVD with his birthday concert held on 6 June this summer.
