Flight From The City is a small sample of Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson's first solo album in six years, Orphée, a melancholic yet optimistic musical journey that traces a path from darkness into light, inspired by the various retellings of the ancient tale of the poet Orpheus. The music is tied together structurally by recurring harmonic and melodic elements, yet each track sounds fresh, evocative and unique, reconciling ambitious orchestral and vocal writing with influences ranging from the Baroque to minimalism and electronic music. "This album, my first solo record for six years, is an oblique reflection on personal change ... moving to a new city, leaving behind an old life in Copenhagen and building a new one in Berlin, about the death of old relationships and the birth of new ones." - Jóhann Jóhannsson

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
