The complete artwork of our debut album is now finished thanx to the amazing designer Jan Yrlund (Darkgrove)! Here is one of his works: THE COVER! Hope you like it as much as we do! One of the things that was very important to us, was that most of the cover should be REAL and based on a real photo. To get this idea into life, we have actually been working on "the cover" since last spring hehe We also want to thank Alexander Enoksen (Ålgård Fotostudio) for the fantastic photos and ideas!
The seeds for Savn (translated: Deprivation) officially took root when multi-instrumentalist Stig contacted Midnattsol vocalist and long-time friend Carmen Elise Espenæs about singing one song for the planned album. She agreed, and he and Anders (keyboards) were so pleased with the final result they invited Carmen to sing on the entire record. With Midnattsol rendered inactive for the time being due to personal commitments within the band, and her new role as a stay-at-home mother, she found herself with enough time to take part in a new musical journey.
