Icelandic producer Bjarki will release his fifth album 'Psychotic_Window' on December 6 !K7.
It is his second LP release of the year, having put out his 'Happy Earthday' album in February, also on !K7.
The album title refers to the depressing yet artistically prolific early period of the artist's career; he explains, "before I started touring, I had these periods where I could write so much music without thinking, pouring my heart out to comfort my thoughts and feelings without trying."

He continues, " I think every struggling artist goes through these phases of being sleep deprived, staying up and making music all night. This was my psychotic window."
"Releasing this album is also a kind of farewell to music I made in a certain period in my life. It's like I'm saying farewell to a grown-up child which is now ready to leave."
