Daði Freyr

The Icelandic-born, Berlin-based musician Daði Freyr had been making music for over a decade before his career took off in 2020 with the song ‘Think About Things’ which seemingly went viral overnight with celebrities such as Russel Crowe and Jennifer Garner posting about it. It all started in his Berlin studio, a tiny space in his flat where he writes and records most of his music. The lyrics for 'Think About Things' are directly inspired by Daði becoming a father in 2019 and all the changes in his life around that. The song was supposed to be Iceland’s contribution to the Eurovision song contest in 2020, performed with Gagnamagnið (the Data Plan) a fictional band made up of Daði’s friends and family members. 'Think About Things' was high in the polls before the contest got cancelled due to COVID but the song grew exponentially in the following months earning a silver record in the UK and recognition as Time magazine’s number six on the top 10 songs of 2020 list.

Daði and Gagnamagnið competed in Eurovision again the year after with a new song '10 Years’ where Daði took to Twitter to invite fans to be a part of the choir on the song. Around 1000 people from all over the globe took up the offer and every single one features on the song. 10 years is written about Daði’s 10-year relationship with his wife, accompanied with an impeccable music video, DIY instruments, action figures, video game, and even a collaboration with Daði’s favourite beer brewery. Due to the pandemic, Daði and Gagnamagnið never made it to the actual Eurovision stage but finished fourth in the contest with a rehearsal tape from their hotel room while they were quarantining, securing Iceland’s second-best result in the history of the contest.

Since then Daði has worked with artists such as Hot Chip, Filous, ÁSDÍS, and Chromeo along with playing sold-out tours in the UK and Europe.

Daði Freyr returns with his debut English language record - a warm, loving collection of electropop. I Made an Album was recorded and produced entirely by Daði Freyr: every programmed note, every melody, every harmony, and every beat has come from him alone in his small studio: “I basically wanted this to be a very true record, to my sound and to what I've been working towards for the past four years.” With themes of reflection and appreciation for both fans and loved ones, the songs in this collection are defined by an innate sense of niceness: there are no tricks or twists, no snark, just genuine good energy that will get you dancing all night.
