Time for something more lighthearted with the new single “Flamingo“. I’m also currently working on new music.

A slightly shorter version of ”UlieIcry” is out now. This edited version doesn’t include the very last part of the original. Marking it as ”Radio Edit” on Spotify and other major streaming platforms was not by choice. I had preferred ”Edit” only but ”Radio Edit” was the only option available. It is not edited for radio purposes. Releasing it in a bit more condensed version is something I have thought about for some time now. UlieIcry was originally released on the self-titled debut album. Free MP3 download on SoundCloud. Ends June 2.

Winter Blue and Hopeless in Stockholm are two songs that have both English and Swedish vocals. I’ve provided translations of the Swedish lyrics below. They are direct translations and are not meant to rhyme or sound poetic in any way.

I recently started a ”series” on Instagram called Pre-Foghorn where I share pictures and stories from my childhood growing up abroad in different countries and more. For now it’s on Instagram only.

One video and ten pictures giving a closer look at the painting used for the artwork for the latest single ”Wildfyre” have been posted on Facebook and Instagram. I had a very specific idea for the artwork and Polish iconographer residing in Greece, Ewelina Mylonaki (Instagram: greekiconographer), was very kind to paint it and send it to me. It took her 300 hours to finish it. I highly recommend viewing the artwork in full resolution at here. But no photo/scan can do it justice.

PULS, a printed and online magazine in Ciechanów in Poland have written an article about Foghorn Lonesome and Ewelina Mylonaki (Instagram: greekiconographer) who grew up in this city and painted the artwork for the new single “Wildfyre” that was released last month. A PDF version of the magazine can be downloaded from their website here. A big thank you to everyone at PULS for the support.

As I have mentioned before the live aspect of Foghorn Lonesome is on hold. In late 2018 the live band was dissolved and since then I have focused on releasing new music. Also now isn’t the right time to start up a new live band due to Covid. We’ll see what the future brings. For now Foghorn Lonesome is just me writing and releasing music occasionally as it’s always been. Now that the new single is out I will eventually start thinking about what comes next. As always thank you for the support.

The next single is titled “Wildfyre”. Samples can be heard on Instagram. The artwork for it has been painted by Ewelina Mylonaki (Instagram: greekiconographer). I had a very specific idea for the artwork and she was very kind to paint it for me and send it to me from Greece. I have scanned the painting and I am now finishing the last details regarding the release of the single.

My best friend Thomas and his wife Camilla recently lost their son to cancer. All earnings from download sales on Bandcamp of all Foghorn Lonesome music will go directly to a fund they set up in his name to help raise funds for cancer research. Their Instagram is “tillsammansforlinus“. This starts today, August 10 to September 10. In addition to this Thomas will match the amount in earnings with his own donation, doubling it. At the moment the next single is currently being mixed.

New single “Strawberry Moon” is out now. At the time of this post it is available on most streaming services and will soon be on others as well. It’s a bit different from anything I’ve done before. Some might not call it a “song” in the traditional sense. It’s perhaps best listened to through a good pair of headphones. I mentioned in a previous (now deleted) post that I had originally intended the next single to feature two tracks. This and another one. But I decided to release them separately. Strawberry Moon would have been the second track on the single. The other track is currently being mixed. At the moment the live aspect of Foghorn Lonesome is on hold. In late 2018 live band members Tomas and Jessica moved to another city making it difficult to continue. So I focused on the single “Hopeless in Stockholm” which was released in February 2019. I have tried putting together a new live band but we’ll see what the future brings. For now Foghorn Lonesome is just me writing and releasing music occasionally… as it’s always been.
