In a surprise announcement today that will please fans of Kim Ljung of SEIGMEN and ZEROMANCER, not only did Karisma Records reveal that they would be releasing the sixth full-length album from Ljung’s LJUNGBLUT project, they have also released an exclusive new single which will not be available on the album.
Titled “Alt godt”, the single is a stripped down and melancholy song imbued with the characteristic Ljungblut sound. “Alt godt” is produced by Ljungblut, mixed by Terje Johannessen and mastered by Chris Sansom. With a cover photo by Julia Beyer and band photos by Christian Roth Christensen, “Alt godt” is available from the 12th February from all digital streaming and download services. It can be heard at http://phonofile.link/ljungblut-alt-godt
Formed by Ljung in 2005 in Tønsberg, Norway, as a vehicle for songs that he felt didn’t fit in with either SEIGMEN or ZEROMANCER, LJUNGBLUT became a fully fledged band in 2011 with the addition of full-time members, some of whom had collaborated on LJUNGBLUT’s first two albums. Joining Ljung (keys and vocals) are Dan Heide on guitars, Ted Skogmann on drums , Joakim Brendsrød on keys , and Sindre Pedersen on bass.
With five independently released albums under their belts, LJUNGBLUT are set to release their much-awaited sixth full-length album, which will be titled “Villa Carlotta 5959”, on Karisma Records in the fall of 2018.
