Listen to Ólafur Arnalds’ ‘Happiness Does Not Wait’ from Legacies, Season 4, Episode 9

Icelandic multi-instrumentalist Ólafur Arnalds’ ‘Happiness Does Not Wait‘ was that gorgeous piece of string and piano music playing on Legacies last night — Legacies, Season 4, Episode 9, “I Can’t Be The One to Stop You“.

The track was the instrumental piece played as Lizzie is communicating with Josie through their bond.

Ólafur Arnalds’ ‘Happiness Does Not Wait‘ was first released in 2013 on the compilation album Erased Tapes Collection V.

After almost a decade since it first came out, Arnalds decided the piano-driven piece needed an update.

So the Icelandic musician remixed and remastered it, and re-released the track in its new form earlier this year.

Listen to that gorgeous new remix as heard on Legacies down below.

You can grab the track itself via Bandcamp.

And, if you love the music the incredibly talented and ridiculously prolific Ólafur Arnalds creates, he has a huge amount of work on Spotify I guarantee you will like just as much.

In fact, the talented multi-instrumentlist has created such superb work, he has been nominated for an Emmy award for his work on Defending Jacob, and two Grammy awards for other compositions.

You will also probably recognize some of his work from the many popular TV series his work has appeared on.
