Always first out of the gate with end-of-year lists, Rough Trade has just announced their 2020 Albums of the Year list. Making the list are Max Richter - Voices & Olafur Arnalds - some kind of peace.

Over a decade after its inception, ground-breaking composer Max Richter announced the release of VOICES via Decca Records – a major new recording project inspired by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The first single from his uplifting new work, is described as "a place to think and reflect." At the heart of both VOICES is a profound sense of global community, born out of Richter's career-long view of music as activism and his desire to unite audiences worldwide.

'some kind of peace' is the stunning new album from the ground-breaking composer and producer Ólafur Arnalds, available via Mercury KX. The record features a brand new track 'The Bottom Line' ft. Josin, alongside a beautiful video featuring the work of Japanese flower artist Azuma Makoto out today, and 'Loom', Arnalds' collaboration with Bonobo. Also out now is 'finding some kind of peace', a very special behind the scenes film about the new album.
