Now when Sofia Härdig is on her journey to release her new album it’s in the same experimental and transparent way the critics and listeners all over the world has loved about her. The album, a sequel to the critically acclaimed ”And The Street Light Leads to the Sea”, is named ”changing the order” and was recorded by Sofia herself with Jari Haapalainen behind the production. The songs are written all over the world when Sofia was an tour – an eclectic mixture of impressions that has left its marks on the songs.
Sofia about the second single ”Let Me Fall”: ‘I laid down the bass line for this song using a borrowed, broken, hopeless, but fine old synth during a tour in England. I continued building ‘Let Me Fall’ with other synths and programming, and then brought these recordings with me on tour and added recordings with other musicians I met. Amongst them were a classical pianist in Berlin, a synth player in Copenhagen and a cellist from the opera. John Essing (bob hund) and I recorded the guitar parts in a shed – these parts were added also. I smashed the new recordings into pieces and rebuilt them; deconstructed and reconstructed. At the end, I brought in Jari Haapalainen to produce the song. The bass line from the old, broken synth I used in London, is the main focal point of ‘Let Me Fall’ – a song from London, Berlin, Copenhagen, Stockholm, and Malmö.’ – Sofia Härdig
The album will be released on 20th of April and after that Sofia will give concerts in Sweden in the end of spring.
