Fonal releasing album by seven year old boy

Sami Sänpäkkilä's Fonal label, home to Islaja, Kemialliset Ystävät, Paavoharju and others, is releasing an album by a seven year old boy. Eeliks:En (aka Eelis Mikael Salminem) started recording the album on his dad's iPhone, singing in a mixture of gibberish and English. He will not be playing live he says, because "I don't want to be Robin".

Suutre Teiter is released on 29 October. Listen to samples here, or below.
