School of X aka Rasmus Littauer has announced his new album ‘Dancing Through The Void’ which will be out September 24th via Tambourhinoceros. Along with the announcement, he has shared the video for lead single Away. About the video, Rasmus explains, “I wanted to make a simple video, with subtle storytelling, without making a narrative—a story that would build on the emotions of the song. The video was made with director Stroud Rhode Pearce and I think he did exactly what he needed to do. He made the song sound better with his very cinematic yet intimate style.” Watch the video clip via YouTube below.

More about School of X
In early 2020, things were looking up for School of X’s Rasmus Littauer. The first single from his debut album ‘Armlock’ was out, he had just played first Danish headline tour, and he was ready to hop on the plane for gigs in London and the U.S. at SXSW.
You know the rest of the story by now: like so many other artists in 2020, School of X’s album came out while he was forced to stay in. But instead of hanging his head, Littauer took off to his childhood home in the Danish countryside. After six weeks of solitude, Littauer came back to Copenhagen with the songs for his sophomore album ‘Dancing Through the Void’ already under his arm.
Rasmus Littauer has made a name for himself over the past decade as the drummer for pop star MØ. Since ‘Faded. Dream.’, his 2017 debut EP under the moniker School of X, he has been making waves in the Danish scene, and turning heads internationally. School of X returned in ‘19 with his ‘Destiny’ EP, and the 2020 follow-up ‘Interpretations of Destiny,’ featuring remixes and interpretations by Trentemoller and Spencer Zahn, among others. ‘Armlock,’ School of X’s debut album, was released in May of 2020.
