It's been a long time since the last update, and there are
some things that I'd like to say. It might get a bit personal and a
bit long. When we first started working on new music we could never
have expected how difficult and hard the progress on this album
When it comes to getting good material out, I've always been
saying to myself that how hard and frustrating it's ever been
getting your music to sound just the way you want it, it is worth
it. Sometimes the work is grueling, and yes this time it was the
hardest experience yet, but we we were doing something very
special. I'm still convinced that the songs we've written together
for the last years is the best we've ever done.
About a month ago, everything crashed down on our heads, it
was simply to much to handle, both creatively and personally, It
had gotten to a point where we simply couldn't cope with the
pressures of being in the studio. Without going into the depth of
the problems, I could easily have written a book or 2 about all the
numerous troubles we've run into during the making of this album.
It's very complex so i don't dare going into to much details.
So where do we stand now?
I took some time off, starting to get a grip on where it all
had gone wrong, and quickly after the first wave of disappointment
of failure, I discovered that we had been lost in the technological
mess and the urge and desire of making the fantastic masterpiece.
There weren't an ounce left of the simplicity and fun way of making
music in the way we had worked in the last years. All the stuff
that we once knew had been lost out for many reasons. What wasn't
gone, however, was our songwriting and love for the music itself.
So after I had picked myself up, I just wrote it all down.
And now after some weeks, i'm very clear of each and all of the
wrong turns, and I am so extremely relieved to see that the work is
not lost. In fact it's overwhelming to listen back to all the
material we've recorded and written. We have all of these amazing
songs that just demands to be recorded and released. And i'm over
the moon with ideas just how to do it. And the best part is... Now
I can see that it's really not that hard to do. I just had to
remember and connect myself with the way I used to work in the
past, and also we just had to draw a line and say "too bad it
didn't happen - but let's do another try."
We're about to have a much needed and long awaited vacation
(our postponed honeymoon, as a matter of fact). And with that I'd
like to say thanks to you who has been encouraging us during this
time, and I'm very much looking forward getting the songs out and
getting moonbabies out touring again. Best for 2012! Love /
