In early February Björn moved to the island of Fårö on the east coast of Sweden together with his girlfriend Yrsa and their rabbit Humle. They rent a house there by the ocean and the idea was to "be creative".
Björn had already finished most of the recordings for his upcoming album BURMA, but after finalizing BURMA on Fårö he decided that wasn't enough. He had started writing songs in a high speed and decided to make an mp3-album out of it.
It's a solo experience of what happened in a small room facing east during a few weeks in march and april this year. The title is borrowed from a line in a Sonya Hartnett book, and we do hope you like it. Together with the 13 songs comes a package of illustrations, a photo diary, lyrics and note book excerpts. Enjoy!
