"Sentimentalist", the stunning, emotionally wrenching centerpiece to Sondre Lerche's forthcoming pop masterpiece Please, is available to stream through Brooklyn Vegan.

Coming off of his understated 2011 self-titled LP, Norwegian art pop crooner Sondre Lerche is about to release his boldest and best recording yet, the stunning Please.

Feel the Noise, his latest studio effort, captures the spirit of a musician who has grown comfortably into his style.
