So I guess it’s no secret and you probably already know all about it, but my new album is coming out in May. May 12th to be precise. I was living in Florida for a few months last year and wrote a bunch of songs and started recording them in my walk in closet that I had turned into a small recording studio. One of the very first weeks of my stay it rained non stop for a whole week. I was trapped inside with a monsoon outside and had nothing better to do than to play the guitar. So I wrote what later became the title track of the new album “Florida”.
The cover art is inspired by the eerieness of the Florida swamps with its lurking alligators. I especially loved the Spanish moss that grew on the trees everywhere, it made me think of scary movies, voodoo and black magic. I was also fascinated by the alligators and took a trip to Gator Land, where I took the picture of the albino alligator. Talented photographer Camilla Svensk later took the pic of me in her studio and I merged them together. I’m sorry to say I’m not cool enough to hold a real alligator in a leash like that.
You will soon be able to pre-order the album and there will also be a special edition box for those of you who want that little extra.
We are currently redesigning the website to fit the new “Florida”-theme so please don’t be annoyed if it’s a little bit messy for a while.
