Sondre Lerche Honored With Official Norwegian Post Stamp

Sondre Lerche continues his 30th birthday celebration with the limited edition vinyl pressings of his first four albums - Faces Down, Two Way Monologue, Duper Sessions and Phantom Punch. All four albums that include bonus tracks and outtakes were released earlier this week on www.sondrelerche.com. Listen to "Lulu" a bonus track from the NPR, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly & Pitchfork approved album Duper Sessions.

In a candid video commentary, Sondre discusses the making of Duper Sessions  - an album which he calls "kind of an accident," why he wanted to record with a band live in the studio and how he paid tribute to some of his favorite songwriters (Costello, Porter).

The National Mail in Norway has honored Sondre with his own official mailing stamp.

"I'm honored and flabbergasted to be considered legal tender in Norway," says Sondre.  "It's quite the surprise and destined to mess with my head. As an independent artist, running my own small label and being accustomed to not quite fitting into any particular boxes or scenes it's strangely encouraging to be acknowledged by the establishment in the form of a stamp. It's also important to mention that these are not the kind of stamps you have to lick, they are already sticky."
