Abstract [ja]

90年代、日本でも一大ブームとなったスウェディッシュ・ポップシーンの中、デビューアルバム『No Sleep 'til Famous』からのシングル曲 "Monument of Me" でその存在を大きく知らしめたバンド The Merrymakers。続く2ndアルバム『Bubblegun』では Jellyfish の Andy Sturmer をプロデューサーに迎え "Saltwater Drinks" "Superstar" といったスマッシュヒットを連発。その後バンドは活動休止となるが、メンバーの David Myhr は PUFFY の "ハッピーバースデイ" "Boom Boom Beat" などの楽曲提供をはじめ、フジファブリックの4thアルバム『CHRONICLE』(ストックホルムにある David の所有スタジオ "monogram recordings" で録音)ではプロデューサーの一人として名を連ねるなど、日本の音楽シーンとのつながりも深い。また David 自身も2012年発表のアルバム『Soundshine』よりソロとしての活動をスタート。そして2018年、今や人気プロデューサーとして引っ張りだこの Brad Jones とタッグを組み、アメリカ・ナッシュビルで録音した2ndアルバム『Lucky Day』をリリース。今回そのアルバム発売に伴い、およそ7年ぶりとなる単独来日公演が実現。

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 (Refereed)
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.“
