A new signee to the Copenhagen-based label Tambourhinoceros (Palace Winter, IRAH, Pardans), musician and singer-songwriter Rasmus Littauer, also known as School of X, returns after a two-year hiatus. For this comeback, the artist, who borrows his moniker from Eksskole (Copenhagen’s anti-establishment art school from the 1960s), has decided to release a live recording of “I’ll Never Be Ready To Die”, a new and unreleased track that previews what’s coming next for School of X.

About this new offering, he developed:

This song is written on an airplane when flying across China. It marks how ideas arise suddenly and how they can be triggered in a sensitive moment. It was a feeling of articulating something unknown in a natural and intuitive way. It’s about feeling love instinctively and intensely but as the title suggests, also in an unresolved way. 

The video of this heartfelt performance was directed, filmed and edited by Frederik Valentin. The artist is also joined by saxophonist Malthe Beck and the very talented harpist Selma Judith. Watch below.
