Christoffer Lundquist to release solo album in May

As previously reported, Christoffer Lundquist is going to release a solo album in the following months. Warner Music Sweden AB has sent out a press release today with some information about the album:

– Album release is set for May 4th – two days after Christoffer is going to receive the “Sir George Martin Music Award” in Palladium, Malmö.

– Title: “Through The Window”.

– Tracklist (taken from Swedish online stores Ginza.se or CDON)

01. Green
02. On Air
03. The Raging Hands Of Time
04. Tiny Penelope
05. Full Moon
06. By A Garden Wall
07. A Clearing In The Forest
08. Cloudberry Way
09. Through The Window
10. Everybody Prop.8 Breakdown
11. Everything About This Life Is Garbe D In Mystery
12. Early Morning Street
13. Not A No-no
14. Showtime
15. Angel Blue

– 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.

The BBC reviews “Charm School”. Fun reading!

Chris Roberts of the BBC got to review Roxette’s new album for the upcoming UK release. They get away pretty fine!

With a Hollywood-like sense of triumph over adversity, Roxette return with their first album since singer Marie Fredriksson was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2002. She recovered, and the Swedish power-pop duo seems appropriately exhilarated. …

Additional show in Munich?

It’s not listed in the tour plan yet. But if you believe the newsletter, German ticket website Eventim sent out earlier today, there’s an additional show in Germany planned. This would be the first show of the autumn leg. The show in the Olympiahalle in Munich is listed for the 11th of October. The ticket sale starts tomorrow at 9 am.

Source: Eventim Newsletter

UPDATE, 18/03/: The ticket sale started one hour ago and Munich is not on the list anymore. So maybe it’s simply not confirmed yet or Eventim just got wrong information.

First number of Swedish magazine StyleBy includes a story about Marie Fredriksson

The first number of new Swedish fashion magazine StyleBy, which hits the streets today, features a fashion reportage about Marie Fredriksson’s style through the years as well a short interview with her. In the pages various models wear 10 of her outfits, with a comment to each piece by Marie.

Jonna Bergh, editor in chief and publisher of StyleBy, told us that Marie has stored all her outfits in a huge wardrove, “it was like a fashion museum!”.

The magazine is also available as a free app for iPad called StyleBy+. You can buy the magazine via this app, which includes a very cool photo of Marie which is not in the screenshots below.

StyleBy gave us permission to post screenshots of the article. A translation of Marie’s comments will be available in short!
