With the release of my solo debut album Soundshine only a month away  I have a special surprise gift for you all to enjoy. Together with my U.K./European label Lojinx that will launch Soundshine throughout Europe I am today sharing with you a free download of the album’s bittersweet opening track “Never mine” in an alternate, very “stripped down” version – or “unplugged” version if you prefer:

This version has no drums or electric guitars and a lot less overdubs than what you will hear on the album. Although not fully as “naked” as my earlier acoustic cover versions of ABBA’s “Happy New Year” and Tom Petty’s “Wildflowers”.
The song is one of my personal favorites on the album and I sincerely hope you will like it too!
If you are Japanese fan who already bought the album on it’s pre-release in December  – this is your chance to discover an album track in a new way!
All you have to do is click on the “Get it now”-button above and it will ask for your e-mail address. A second later you’l have an e-mail in your inbox asking to confirm and the download begins! I would be thankful for any help from all you early followers in spreading the word. One way to do this is of course to use the “share”-button on the widget above – or this whole blog post with the buttons below.
In any case – thanks a lot for your help! Now please enjoy and “sing, sing, sing, sing…”!

I am very pleased to announce that I’ve found a “home” for my my upcoming album Soundshine – not only in Japan where it was pre-released two months ago on Thistime Records – but also here in Europe where the album is due for release at the end of March. The label is called Lojinx and it’s a London-based independent record label and is distributed in the UK & Europe by Essential Music & Marketing.
I am in the very best of company since Lojinx also has quite a bunch of my favorite current artists and bands on their roster. Like for instance Fountains of Wayne, Brendan Benson, Bleu, Josh Fix, Pugwash, The Wellingtons, and Farrah. Just to name a few! These are all in my opinion representatives of highest quality melodic pop – or power pop – or whatever you want to call it. It’s all about great pop, great songs, and great sounds! I’m extremely proud to be stable mate at the label with these stunning acts. For those of you who may not be familiar with all of them – please keep an eye on my Facebook Page over the next few days where I will celebrate these brilliant artists and bands by sharing some great songs and videos.
