Flash back – Black Eyes and Blue

While I’m busy creating a new music video for you guys, I’ll take you down memory lane once again, and remember the ‘Black Eyes and Blue’ video with you.

Fun facts about ‘Black Eyes and Blue’:

  • This song is really about domestic violence, and is to me quite a tragic song. But most people experience it as a euphoric happy song.
  • A few of the people crashing the pool party at the end is actually on the Norwegian national team of snowboarding.
  • This song marked our ‘break-through’ in the music industry, when it became the official after movie track of the Ultra Festival, something we were the only Norwegian artists to achieve, until Kygo came along and did it, and people totally forgot about us already having been there.
  • Songwriter and vocals on this is the incredible Ingrid, the lead singer of HIGHASAKITE.

Customized

The music video we’re doing while I’m here in the US, is for my next single ‘Never Wanna Lose You’. I’m going to keep the featuring artist secret for a little while longer, but what I wanted to tell you is about this jacket! Pontus of P & J Styling was so kind and got this customized for me for this music video, and I’m so happy with it. I’m crazy for anything customized, but this jacket is currently my number one customized piece of clothing!

Three travel favorites: Leather jacket, comfy Adidas Originals and my trusted Brics suitcase.

Sorry!

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!

The Stockholm Syndrome

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 FrΓΈder, who also features on Phoenix with me.
  • We performed this live on TV, as the opening act for Norwegian Grammys.

The video for “Stronger” is finally ready! Thank you to everyone involved, especially Fredric Esnault who directed it, and Comfort Hotel Grand Central who let us trash their suite.
