• I’ve recorded a new single with long time Pink Floyd backing vocalist Durga McBroom!

    I’m very proud to announce my new single Dark Shadows (part 1) featuring the amazing Durga McBroom, Pink Floyd’s long time backing vocalist. Durga is known for her work on Delicate Sound of Thunder, Division Bell, Pulse and Endless River.

    Dark Shadows is the first track off my new EP that will be out on vinyl, CD and digital September 30th.

    This is a dream I’ve had for years. The idea has been to write original material but allowing all my Pink Floyd influences to shine through. I’ve tried to stay true to how Pink Floyd approach the writing, recording and production.

    It was a fun experience. Not least to come up with the guitar tones and record them.

    In addition to Durga McBroom, A Fleeting Glimpse feature performances by Arild Broter (drums) and Oyvind Broter (piano). Both known from Norwegian prog outfit Pymlico. Per Øydir plays Farfisa and Mimi Tamba provides backing vocals. The EP is mixed by my long time collaborator Vegard Kleftås Sleipnes and mastered by Jacob Holm-Lupo (White Willow, Opium Cartel).

    Pre-order signed copies of A Fleeting Glimpse exclusively from my official shop.

    Bjorn, Congratulations on your new album “A Fleeting Glimpse”
    Did you record the album all digital or analog? I want to purchase the vinyl, but if it’s digitally recorded then there’s no point, I’ll just order the CD. Thank you, Craig Larson/Temecula, California ?

      Thank you! It’s mixed and mastered digitally. That being said, we always mix with vinyl in mind. I know the difference between digital and analog for vinyl but it’s always a question of money and time. Mixing analog is time consuming and expensive. We make sure that all the frequencies are matching the vinyl format and try our best to produce a mix and master that will sound great on vinyl. As many vinyl aficionados have praised as well.

    Great track in every way. Songwriting, arranging, production..a jusitified tribute to 80’s Floyd albums. I think the guitar tones, from the acoustic to the lapsteel to the lead guitar sounds really great. Would you care to give us a gear rundown for this
