My second solo album is nearing completion. It will be in the form of 2 separate 40 minute albums released in the same 2 CD set, and will also come as a blu-ray with surround mix, high definition stereo and a lot of visual material (Lasse is already working hard on films for many of the songs, attached is a still from one of these we shot a couple of weeks ago to a song called "Index"). We're also planning a special Insurgentes style hard back book edition with a full length bonus CD of additional material. A year in the making, this is without doubt my biggest project to date, perhaps my most ambitious and personal music, and with some phenomenal musicians and performances on it (drummer Nic France in particular is going to blow a lot of people away). We hope a website will launch around April/May to start previewing material, with the album scheduled for September. More soon....

Sounds awesome, an amazing tease. And the fact that he is calling this "my biggest project to date, perhaps my most ambitious and personal music" is astounding. HUGE expectations from me. I hope it's as good as it sounds.
Mah face when i read this..

Don't musicians always say something similar about about their new album?

Goddamn it, hopefully I'll be able to resist the super-limited mega-awesome extra edition. Although I probably won't.

I know, that d*ck!  Oh well, something else to put on my LONG wish list of albums I don't have yet!  If it's anywhere as good as Insurgentes, well then, I don't know what I'm gonna do!

For the third time a 2 CD album that could be done in just one CD.

My bank account is going to be empty, by the time I get through all of that.

Not really. Not always.

Based on reviews I'll probably buy it.
