Kölsch announces new album I Talk To Water with uplifting new single ‘An Amazing’

Danish house and techno phenomenon Kölsch is back with a bang on rousing new single ‘An Amazing’, out now via Kompakt.

Setting the tone for Kölsch’s upcoming album I Talk To Water, to be released on 27th October, ‘An Amazing’ is an electrifying uptempo groove decorated with sublime synth melodies and a delicate vocal line repeating the simple yet powerful central hook: “You’re an amazing”. A rousing, emotional banger, this is a tantalising glimpse into Kölsch’s next LP.

Kölsch is set to grace the release of I Talk To Water with a global tour, spanning Europe, South America and the United States, as well as festivals including Tomorrowland Brazil, Art of the Wild and Amsterdam ADE.

Kölsch’s fifth album for Kompakt, I Talk To Water, is an intimate, deep-dive narrative that interweaves themes of family and history, whilst acknowledging the process of turning grief into comfort. The core of the album is inspired by Kölsch’s father Patrick Reilly, who passed away in 2003. Tracks Grape, Tell Me and It Ends Where It Began, alluse recordings from Kölsch’s father, who was a touring musician during the sixties and seventies.

Pieced together during the pandemic and its numerous lockdowns, the tranquility of this moment inspired Kölsch to reflect on his father’s passing, and how he could memorialise such a significant figure in his life. Delving into a wave of sentimental emotions, I Talk To Water began to bloom. The recordings used in the project provided a gateway for Kölsch, to unite both the past and present in a meaningful way, allowing him to create his most personal body of work yet.

With the full length album I Talk To Water on the way this October 27th, ‘An Amazing’ whets the appetite for fans of Kölsch’s melodic, emotionally charged techno.
