APRIL 3, 2019
Hi, how are you?
So happy you’re still here.
I know, this page has been more or less abandoned since last spring, when EXORCISM came out. But now, believe it or not, I have a new amazing record very-soon-to-be-released to take care of. And a new homepage, perhaps that’ll make me more motivated to write here… Btw – a quick question – does anyone ever look at artists homepages anymore? I’m not so sure. All I know, is that I’m fed up with FB. It sucks. So, I rather write long personal essays here (with perhaps only two readers), than trying to shout out messages on FB, because doing that is like screaming into a supermassive black hole.
Anyway, for you who didn’t know, my new album, TRAUMA is out April 12. It’s the sister-album of EXORCISM. And it’s my first one in my native language! Hjälp!
I’ve been writing music since I was 17, and I’ve kept avoiding my mother tongue during all these years. Why? Well, I grew up with, and was influenced by American and British bands. They did not sing in Swedish. They had attitude. I’ve been totally convinced that I would need the “rock’n’roll-language” to express myself in music. I associated singing in Swedish with the lullabies I heard as a kid and later on sang to my own kids. Scared to sound lame and goofy, I’ve kept avoiding it, all until now. Now was the time to be the truest, most fragile version of myself. It’s far from lame. And more explicit than ever. (But as a proof of how much I care for you who doesn’t speak it, yet, I’ll keep writing here in English!)
PS. Feel free to listen to the first single GÖRA SAKEN VÄRRE (RADIO EDIT)
