I, who ran to the store to buy A-ha's first record the day it was released (june 1st 1985 aparently and one of the first 10 albums I bought with my own money, and one of the best) thought it was a fun idea.
Then Martin and I wrote another song, it is the first song in that clip.
We are extremely glad to announce that we have started sessions for album 10.
We are currently residing in a studio in the south of France where we are putting together new wicked songs for yet another magic album. Hugs and kisses kent." Pics from the studio in France has been uploaded on both Friday last week and today. Allthough this is the first official news regarding the band since the last single was released in October 2010 the members have been involved in a lot of side projects the last year.
Thank you for the last five years and keep visiting!
On thursday kent opens this years touring at Vega in Copenhagen, Denmark.It is the first of six exclusive gigs at smaller venues.Vega is followed by Rockerfeller in Oslo, Norway on friday and Stockholm, Sweden on Saturday.Monday December 12 this week kent published a press release at that reads: "In April the new album "Jag r inte rdd fr mrkret" ("I'm not afraid of the dark") will be released.During the autumn the band has rehearsed new songs that was written during the past year.During a meet and greet at Fnac on January 29 in Rio de Janeiro samples of the songs on the album was played.One of the song is a cover of kent's "Krleken Vntar" sung in english by Morten. Joakim has also written about this in the forum at kent.nu: "It was Mortens own idea.Possibly, another song I wrote together with a guy called Jonas Quant will also end up on the album." You can also listen to the whole song that Jocke and Martin has written for Morten on youtube.It's called Lightning and is the first single from the album.In November Jocke, Martin, Markus and Sami went to France, when they got back home they had a whole new album in their luggage. That remains to see but the band says: "We wanted to do a collection of songs where only the best melodies had a place.Proud, hopeful and free (well, almost) of self pity.
