Olovson Premieres “Labyrinter” Ahead of Album Release

Neo-classical producer Jacob Olofsson launches into 2022 by releasing his long-anticipated LP, Storytelling, the first album under his Olovson alias via his own imprint 1136 Diamond on the 18th of February. On the album, listeners will be able to find the captivating track, “Labyrinter”. The album, which will also be available on vinyl, is accompanied by a selection of videos from UK-based illustrator and animator Gabriel Böhmer who also created the LP artwork as well as Sevilla-based illustrator María Medem and animator Anna Budanova. The video for his single, ‘Gyroscope’ has been included in the official selections for both Encounters Film Festival’s as well as the London International Film Festival and the London Short Film Festival which are all BAFTA qualifying festivals.

Jacob Olofsson is known for being one half of the Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum selling production duo Jarami. During this time he worked with industry mammoths such as Frank Ocean, Dua Lipa, Mark Ronson, Diplo, Silk City and Camila Cabello. While coming from Stockholm, Sweden, Olovson currently counts both Stockholm and Los Angeles as his home, travelling between the two.

When the current world turns monotonous and dull, heavy with daily tasks, a respite can be found in Storytelling as you’re led down a road of neo-classical adventure and escapism. Olovson reveals a carefully crafted world of gentle piano note delicately entwining with mysticism and a gentle yet persistent hope for what the future holds. The LP is bold with authenticity while remaining untouched by the harshness of modern life.

“This is my first solo album and it is such a wonderful feeling to finally put it out. I have composed, played, lived and breathed these compositions for the past two years and it feels great to finally share them with everyone. I wish this album brings peace to people’s lives and ignites their imagination.” – The producer on the creation of the album. He further continues: “Labyrinter means Labyrinths in Swedish and is about looking ahead and not to be afraid to see what is around the next corner. Maybe you’ll find something you like.”
