Today I’m releasing my 5th album “The Owls Are Not What They Seem”. Thank you everyone who pre-ordered the CD and to all my fans who pledged for the four EPs in L.O.V.E that preceded this album. (To make it clear for those of you who haven’t heard the EPs – this is a totally different production.)
I’m shipping all of the pre-ordered signed albums today. You who have pre-ordered will also get your download codes today. And for you who missed out on the physical release here’s some links to where you can listen. You will still be able to listen and purchase a download in any format you prefer here: Sofia’s music store.
If you’d rather go through the middle man, you can listen and purchase a download here (and probably a bunch of other online stores too):
Here’s a live video of one of the songs from the album performed at Moonlight on the Mountain in Birmingham, AL on my Drivin’ & Dreaming tour that I’m currently doing in the US.
Today is the day when the L.O.V.E & H.A.T.E saga has reached it’s end as “E – Part Four of H.A.T.E” is released. I’m extra happy to see that the last metal band in this project has a female singer, and that it doesn’t make it one bit less hard rock than the other EPs.
Thank you to all who have participated in the project through pledging, and to all the great metal bands who worked hard to make my songs their own. I’m blown away by they wonderful job they’ve done and I can’t wait to hear more from all of them!
For 10 days I will make a playlist on Spotify every day with one of my songs from my new album ‘Florida’ and some other songs from my favourite artists. So if you want to hear some great music make sure you tune in and listen. Links will be posted on Facebook and Twitter every day.
If you missed the first one yesterday, you can listen here!
Florida – Playlist #1:
Sofia Talvik – King of the willow tree
Cherry Ghost – People help people
Fleet Foxes – Tiger mountain peasant song
Olle Nyman – Don’t let those bastards reel you in
Kathryn Williams – 50 white lines
Sufjan Stevens – Chicago
Josh Ritter – Good man
Today’s Florida playlist has a bit of a country theme. I’ve chosen some of my favourite artists, two among them are really cool country artists from Sweden, Anton Björkevall and The Tallest Man on Earth! I played at the same venue as Anton on South by Southwest in March and he and his band were great. Check it out!
Florida – Playlist #2
Sofia Talvik – Florida
Ryan Bingham – Southside of heaven
The Doors – Touch me
Anton Björkenvall – Love will always get us down
Aimee Mann – How am I different
The Tallest Man On Earth – Troubles will be gone
Neko Case – Fox confessor brings the flood
My new album ‘Florida’ is now up on Spotify in Scandinavia. It will soon be available in the rest of the territories but you guys who live outside Scandinavia have to wait just a little while longer for the bureaucracy to take it’s time. The blog Spotinews also listed a few new Swedish releases the other day and my album was one of them.
So that basically means that you can listen for free, but if you like it I’m very happy if you support me by buying an album in my shop.
