Shelflife

I’m happy to announce that I’ve signed with Shelflife Records (Thieves Like Us, The Radio Dept., Burning Hearts etc) and that they will release the new album in America fall 2012.

I’ve also agreed with Universal Records in the Philippines, and they will release it there, just like they did with the two previous albums. News for the European and Japanese audience will follow soon.

Album completed

The new and third Dylan Mondegreen album is completed, after a few hectic days in London.

After Ian Catt had finished the last mixes, Guy Davie at Electric Mastering added that final sparkle to the album, treating it through a console that used to be the heart of EMI’s studio in Nigeria in the 70s. That doesn’t mean the record sounds like Fela Kuti or Wings, though.

How does it sound, you may ask. Hopefully, in a not too distant future, you can be the judge of that.

NME / The Drums

Jacob Graham (The Drums) shares his favorite new musical discoveries in a recent issue of NME (25th Feb). Jacob says: “I’ve just discovered Dylan Mondegreen, a Norwegian songwriter who hasn’t released anything since 2009′s ‘The World Spins On’. He writes sad, sweet songs – dare I make a Blueboy comparison? Perhaps! There are equal measures of Jens Lekman, Acid House Kings and Sufjan Stevens in there, too”, and he places Wishing Well first in his Top 5 list.

 

The Day Away With You

The Day Away With You was originally intended to be included on The World Spins On, but didn’t make the cut. It was a bonus track on the Korean version of While I Walk You Home, released by Pastel Music. However, it has not been released elsewhere. I thought I’d share it with you now, so here it is, as a free download.

Working on new album

I’m currently working hard on a new Dylan Mondegreen album, with help from among others producer and mixer Ian Catt (Saint Etienne) and engineer Rune Berg (The Margarets). Hopefully the release will see the light of day in the not too distant future.

 

New web site

Here’s the new and refurbished dylanmondegreen.com.

Here you can leave replies on articles or use the contact form to send me an e-mail. I personally read and try to reply to every mail I receive.
