Sofia Ek's Guide to Stockholm
The author of Spotify's new audiovisual album The Minefield Girl shares her local's guide to the Swedish capital
Written by Samuel Anderson
Sofia Ek attends The Minefield Girl Audio Visual Book Launch at Lightbox on January 31, 2018 in New York City.
In an effort to intersect technology and literature, Sofia Ek has published an audio-visual memoir in collaboration with Blackdove, detailing her time as a journalist in Libya during Muammar Gaddafi’s regime. Each of Ek’s stories has been transformed into a video clip designed by one of 18 commissioned artists, all of which have been narrated by actress Camilla Belle.
The book launches today on Spotify’s new multimedia format, “Spotlight,” and the book’s audio version will be available on Audible. For a mobile experience of ‘The Minefield Girl’ on Spotify, click here.
Last night at Lightbox in midtown Manhattan, Ek (wife to Spotify co-founder and CEO Daniel Ek) hosted the artists, Belle, and a handful of famous friends—including Chris Rock, Emmy Rossum and Hailee Steinfeld—to celebrate the release of the project.
