Looking for a life
2011 (English)Other (Other academic) [Artistic work]
Abstract [en]

The second single from the upcoming album Soundshine. Released worldwide on iTunes Store and various other digital platforms.The melody for this song was written in Nashville already in 2005 when David hooked up with the American songwriter Ian Eskelin (All Star United). It was one of his first co-writing experiences outside of his previous band the Merrymakers. As an artist and writer Eskelin has had more than thirty Top 10 singles in the United States, including 12 #1 charting songs. He has additionally had international #1 songs in various countries including Japan, Singapore, and Australia.The song was lacking a lyric for a while until David asked Andreas Mattsson for help. Part of the reason for this was the fact that Ian Eskelin had expressed a big interest in Swedish indie-pop music from the 90′s including Mattsson’s former band Popsicle and David's own former band the Merrymakers. On this song David has collaborate with co-producer Andreas Dahlbäck (Lundell, Ternheim, Motorhomes, Eskobar) who also plays the drums. The other musicians featured on this single are Anders Pettersson (The Perishers, Deportees) and Rikard Lidhamn (Oh! Laura).
