Abstract [sv]

HYLLNINGSSKIVA TILL TAGES, SVERIGES BÄSTA 60-TALSBAND

17 nutida artister och band tolkar legendariska Tageslåtar digitalt, på CD och vinyl. 

Allt från jättehiten Sleep Little Girl och Every raindrop means a lot till mästerverket Fantasy Island.

Några av de som medverkar är Peter Morén (från Peter Bjorn & John), Max Lorentz, David Myhr, Soundtrack of Our Lives och det amerikanska bandet Anderson Council.

Idén till albumet fick Göran Brandels, från Mariestad, 2014 då två av medlemmarna i Tages avled och ingen mer återförening kan ske. Musiken får inte glömmas bort. Låtarna är så bra och håller än idag. Tillsammans med Eskilstunabon Peter Torsén drog de igång projektet med att låta några av dagens artister och band tolka Tages musik.

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。

2019 (English)Artistic output (Unrefereed)
Abstract [en]

My brand new song ”Work of Love”  is part of the soundtrack written by film music composer Jimmy Lagnefors for the new comedy Tills Frank skiljer oss åt (Until Frank do us part) that premieres in Swedish movie theatres on October 18, 2019. (The same date will also be the official release date worldwide for the digital single).

Lagnefors has written the whole soundtrack. For the 60s flavoured song ”Work of Love” he invited me to provide lead vocals. I took the song to my heart and tried to add my stamp by writing a dreamy bridge for it in the grand tradition of Beach Boys and Jellyfish (the second best band ever you know…!) . Jimmy and I have previously worked together on songs for movies, including “Vänta inte på mig” (Micke & Veronica, 2014) and “Spellbound” (Flykten till Framtiden, 2016). On the new soundtrack I also sing background vocals on the song Vibrations.

The movie is a comedy written by Peter Magnusson, directed by Leif Lindblom, and starring Liv Mjönes, Peter Magnusson, Erik Johansson. “Work of Love” provides the backdrop to a scene that takes in the ski slopes of winter sports resort Åre.

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.“
