Writing down your thoughts, is like thinking out loud. Things crystallise. Serious, goofy, rants or praises. Just like a musical note disappears the moment it's played, so does the context of your thoughts, the moment they're written.
Just want to let you know about a new track I did with Szhirley, a great Danish singer with whom I've had the pleasure to work with a bunch through the years (to all my Nomads friends: she also did a show with the us at Fredagsrock in Tivoli-Gardens a few years ago where she completely rocked the house!) We've done several fun recordings together, but this one is very special. It's a beautiful song written by Szhirley (in Danish) about parenthood. It's called "Som en Drøm" (=Like a dream). Lyrics that any parent will connect with instantly.
It was done a few years ago, during a turbulent and emotional time in my life. She gave me her beautiful vocal tracks and I proceeded directly to my studio one late evening where I re-arranged, produced and performed everything else on that track. Listening to it today, I can hear the place I was at, but also the resolve and clarity I felt at the time. I just love the way Szhirley sounds and how you can feel her vibe through the speakers.
Check it out. Check Szhirley out! Hope you dig it.
