I have just finished recording a radio single, a duet with my niece Thea Raknes, from the band "Norma Sass". It was made quite spontaneously, some songs have a habit of just knocking hard on the door until you just have to let them in. Recorded at Malabar Studios, with Christian Engfeldt behind the mixer. Just sent it to all the radio stations. I have a feeling that this one is going to live its own life...
Thanks to everyone who turned up for the release concert. A good time was had by all and now the record is finally loose on an unsuspecting world. A few reactions have started to tick in, very positive so far, most uplifting! Waiting for the papers to review any day now. The record is in the stores, A few Platekompaniet outlets, Big Dipper and Los Lobos. It is also slowly making its way onto all the download sites. Itunes, Wimp, Amazon are up and running, amongst others.
