One of my favourite artists Teitur is releasing a new cd called "The Singer" on February 11th in Scandinavia with other territories to follow in March and April (at one point the working title of the album was "Laughter in an Empty Room"). You will be able to hear the songs on the Teitur website and his MySpace page from February 11th. Teitur will also be touring with a full band from 14th February until the end of May around the world (some dates are already listed on his MySpace page). Teitur writes a bit about the songs on his bin website, where you can also watch a movie shot in Fridhem on the outskirts of Visby in Gotland during the recording sessions. One of the songs on the album - "Stop Wasting My Time" was co-written with another favourite singer/songwriter of mine Nik Kershaw.

Here is a quote from Teitur on the website about the new album -

"This album was made in tranquility and isolation. The result is a very natural and somehow nordic sounding record. A producer friend of mine told me this album is “heart and mind” music more than “body and soul” music and maybe he has a point. There are very few syncopations in the music and the setting is minimalist and dramatical with vast colours and large empty landscapes. Furthermore it has similarities to a musical or a book of short stories."
