(2018). "Jealous Sun" (single).
Open this publication in new window or tab >>"Jealous Sun" (single)
2018 (English)Artistic output (Unrefereed)
Abstract [en]

The song, which is the lead track of the upcoming album is called “Jealous Sun” and is a song I wrote together with the fantastic songwriter and artist, Bleu! I had had the melody lying around for years. Actually already since before my recording session in Abbey Road. Then producer Brad Jones to my surprise suggested deleting the verse, and instead let the pre-chorus should be my verse! Brad sure knows what he’s doing. Turned out great!

2018 (English)Artistic output (Unrefereed)
Abstract [en]

Lucky Day is the new album from Swedish songwriter David Myhr. Recorded with Brad Jones in Nashville, the 10 song set features co-writes with Lojinx labelmates Bleu, Bill DeMain & Young Hines, among others. Available on heavyweight 180g LP, gatefold CD and digital download with bonus tracks on the CD only.

Jones, who has helmed notable recordings by Josh Rouse, Hayes Carll and Jill Sobule, said: “My goal was to show David branching out from youthful power-pop to a more reflective, and more lasting sound.” Comparing Lucky Day to Myhr’s prior album Soundshine, Jones continues: “The idea was to create a warmer circle of sound around David, letting him sing in an easy and natural voice, to invite the listener into his world as it is now.” Ultimately, the album offers what Jones calls “a naturalistic kind of rehearsal-room energy.“

Please allow me to present the title track of my new album: "Lucky Day"! Co-written with the album's co-producer Brad Jones who also sings harmony and plays the beautiful bass line. You will also be able to enjoy a lovely drum take (panned right!) from the album’s other co-producer Andreas Quincy Dahlbäck, as well as a soaring pedal steel from Theo Stocks, an acoustic guitar by guitar phantom Pat Buchanan and an Billy Preston-esque organ by Rickard Nilsson.

Note

Detta var ett arrangemang där jag (artisten själv) tagit initiativet. Ingen peer-review.

Abstract [en]

And... just like that. The second track from my album is out! A song I wrote with the amazing Bill DeMain in Nashville. I’m ridiculously proud of it. Chock full of tricky chords that kind of took me out of my pure pop comfort zone. I’m very thankful to Bill for bringing the initial musical germ and the title to the table. It's about how we often tend to overthink everything and rule out things too soon. Instead the song promotes the idea of 'you never know what's going to happen’ and to just give things a chance! Hereby proudly presenting: "Room to grow”!

And so it’s time to present for the fourth track from my album Lucky Day! It’s also the second single that goes out to radio here in Sweden.

The song is called “The Perfect Place” and was actually the first track that was recorded, before the whole project became an American adventure. This was before the co-writing trip and before the decision that Andreas Dahlbäck and I would go over to Nashville to record with Brad Jones.

Abstract [en]

From blog post: I wrote it together with producer Brad Jones who took my stomping uptempo piano based melodic idea and turned it into something that, to me, sounded very beautiful in its laid back, bossa nova-ish vibe. It went from power pop to… well what is it? Is it Yacht Rock? You decide for yourself!

The song features one of my favourite lyric lines on the (coming) album; ”Break my heart a little and I’ll do the same for you” which was a little ”couplet” that Brad had lying around for years that he finally found use for.
