Two years ago, the world suddenly seemed to stand still - as if mankind was holding its breath over the first shock of the pandemic. At the same time, this spring was unusually beautiful in Northern Europe: for weeks the sun shone from the sky, the buds of the plants and the insects came earlier than usual after the long Scandinavian winter.
Martin Tingvall was stranded in his house in southern Sweden during this special time and composed this new album here within a few days. "I was out in nature a lot. During this human standstill, the power of nature seemed all the stronger to me - like a sign that wanted to show us humans that we should not give up. The compositions were created within a few days in March 2020. And then I also recorded them directly. For me, this album is like a symbol of hope. Even when it seems that things won't go on, even after the darkest winter, the light returns in spring."
