– Cover: seems to be taken from/in the studio.. with some wild animals and plants in addition 😉
– It has taken Christoffer 12 years to finish the album, which might not be surprising given that Christoffer’s studio Aerosol Grey Machine has always been taken by other artists. So the only hours the studio was free and he could work on the album were between 4 and 6 in the morning. And Christoffer needed some sleep as well.
– Christoffer has recorded, mastered and mixed the album himself. He also plays all instruments, except for the drums.
And about the award:
George Martin about the award and Christoffer: “When I was his age I was in the middle of producing Sgt. Pepper for The Beatles but nobody took any notice of me until much later. I wish to cheer him with his success and wish him well for his future!”
Here is once again the promotion medley uploaded by Warner.
Christoffer released an EP called “Major & Minor Songs” which contained 4 tracks in 2005. You can read a review by Tomasz here.
