Listeners. Felt it was about time to give you another update.
First of all, I would like to share with you the finished album cover made by the artist KAPE. I think it’s just awesome! Mysterious, abstract, dark and it fits with my new music like a fist in a glove.
Regarding the release date. I was thinking about releasing the album in spring at first BUT now I’m thinking about an autumn release. And why is that? Well, this album is simply not a spring/summer album. This record is the ”debby downer” of my catalogue and therefore no sane person would want to listen to it while relaxing in the sun outside. It’s like letting Bon Iver play at your wedding or watching a Mikael Haneke-movie while you’re happy. You just would not want that. And if I release it in autumn I’ll have a lot of time to really polish it and maybe ad a song or two cause there were only nine songs which made the cut. I originally had 16 (!) full songs but the self-critical perfectionist in me (which are getting more and more picky the higher I climb in my career) felt that there were only nine of them that qualified. 5 years ago maybe I would have chosen to release them all but that’s not the cause now.
So, I’m thinking about adding at least one song and maybe drop another song from the album before the release!
A couple of finished song titles from the record, that I also would want to share with you are: Black Star, Fragments, The Flood and Signs.
So, to conclude everything. Autumn-release date and most likely another single before that! As I said before, I can’t wait for you to hear all these songs. Some of the best pieces I’ve ever made are on this album. I think it’s the best album I’ve made since my debut. And there also are some similarities actually as I think I’ve mentioned before. It’s piano-focused, downscaled and intimate like EMOTIONS but it’s more mysterious, different and ominous. But this doesn’t mean I left out the dynamics. There a lot of power and drama in the mix as well!
That’s all for now. Stay tuned and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
