I just visited Japan for the third time, and played shows in Tokyo, Kobe, Osaka and Hiroshima together with Four Pens from Taiwan (as well as local Japanese artists Wallflower, Sugar Me and many more).
The schedule was very tight, but we found time to record this song for Tokyo Acoustic Session. It was filmed in a lovely three-storey furniture shop in Tokyo at 7.30 in the morning.
This song will be on my next album, which we’ll start recording in Mid-June!
The new Dylan Mondegreen album has just been released on LP and CD in Norway and North America. It’s also available on Spotify, iTunes etc worldwide. In a few days, the record will also be released in the UK and Japan.
The reviews so far have been overwhelming. All Music gives it 4,5 out of 5 stars, and says: “flawlessly written and performed, and produced with uncommon skill and grace — it’s likely one of the best singer/songwriter records of 2012, and most any year that came before.”
As premiered on Under The Radar and Norwegian Broadcasting, here is the video for The Heart Is A Muscle, taken from the new Dylan Mondegreen album. The video is directed by Katalina Bakradze. It can also be found on YouTube.
I received this lovely present today, from a listener in Thailand. She told me While I Walk You Home is her all-time favourite song, and she had made me a wonderful drawing. She allowed me to share it here.
