Danish artist Agnes Obel is in charge of the latest installment of the long-running, artist-curated mix series of Late Night Tales.

The first track of the mix to be released is Inger Christensen’s “Poem About Death.” The song is set to original music by Obel and is exclusive to this mix.

In a press release, Obel said of the track, “To me, sounds have always been more interesting than words. I love it when the voice becomes an instrument and you almost forget it’s a human voice.”
