I’ve been slightly off the grid lately. I was on the road for most of the easter holiday, and basically have had to jump from flight to flight. Currently I’m somewhere over the Atlantic, on my way to Los Angeles to film the music video for my new single coming out in early May! I’m so excited about this shoot, Frederic Esnault have put together a fantastic team, and my two featuring artists are absolutely fantastic. Pontus and Jens of P & J Styling have packed me a wild wardrobe and I’m crazy about one leather jacket I’m going to wear, which is customized by Norwegian brand Mardou & Dean. So do stay tuned for another while longer!
Finally Friday! I’ve had the most intense week, which also featured a bonding trip out of town with mye fellow The Voice mentors, Yousef from Madcon, Lene Marlin and Morten Harket. We had a great time at Refsnes Gods, and I got to try really fine wine for the first time (so far, the only fancy drink I’ve tried is fine vodka. There’s no fine wines in the club.) So apparently, I’m a wine person now!
This weekend I’m headed back on the road, and will visit Trysil for a show. Since it’s the first weekend of easter, I’m hoping for a great turn out.
Have a fantastic Friday!
Long days in the studio does my blog no favors. I’m lacking new and interesting stuff to tell you guys about, so I’d thought I’d take you down memory lane for a minute. Also, Carl Louis new album is called Memory Lane, go check it out, it’s incredible.
Fun facts about The Stockholm Syndrome:
- The girl in the video is actually my ex-girlfriend, Ada Martini.
- The guy in the video is Samuel, one of my good friends from New York. He runs a boxing bootcamp in Marseille these days, so if you feel like an active holiday, you should check it out.
- This song is one of Thomas Hayes favorite songs.
- The vocals on this track is by Frøder, who also features on Phoenix with me.
- We performed this live on TV, as the opening act for Norwegian Grammys.
I’m hitting the road again this weekend. Saturday I’m heading for the mountains to play a show at what is supposed to be one of the best after-skis in the world, Hemsedal. I’ve been coming to Stavkroa in Hemsedal for years and it’s tons of fun every time. Calle, the man in charge up there, is also one of the greatest people to work with, and we always come up with a great show together. If you’re in the area, I hope you’ll stop by!
I’ve keeping this secret for a while now, and finally it’s official. I’ll be one of four mentors on the Norwegian version of The Voice! This is the first time ever a non-vocal artist will be mentoring, and it’s so scary and fun! I hope to see a lot of talents that I can take to the next level, and if you’re a Norwegian aspiring popstar, you should apply by March 8th!
So excited about my first visit to Stockholm!
Here in Norway, there’s an annual award show for the most influential bloggers, Youtubers and Instagrammers in the country. I’m no where near as good as a blogger as some of these people, but I was lucky enough to get to go to the party anyway. There was no prizes for me, but I got to have a lot of fun with some of my best friends.
The night ended with my girlfriend and a buddy of mine having a show down of gymnastics skills in the hotel corridor, which of course led to them both injuring themselves. But all in all, a good night 🙂
