“Out Of Sand” was originally meant to be the opening song to an album I worked on some, years ago. The released version differs somewhat from the original idea, and is also more ambient. (There’s even more to it than that, but I can’t talk about it just yet).

Actually there's several things I can’t talk about before the project is done.

Since this is a “five year long album” these songs are produced exclusively for this context, and some songs goes through quite drastic changes, both in arrangements and production, to complement this album concept, as a whole.

I usually have 3-4 versions of the songs anyway though, which will not be released.

Anyway, the fourth year is now over, and many milestones have been reached this year. One of them is the fact that I’m now starting on the very last year in the project. The final year.

The work load has been absolutely crazy, and I’m not sure it’s been worth it, to be honest. I’ts too early to tell. But I’m finally starting to imagine light at the end of the tunnel.

Exciting times…!

On that note I want to give a special warm thank you to these incredible people and artists:
