The recent news of The Whitest Boy Alive splitting up filled us with sadness, but at least Erlend Øye’s forthcoming new solo album called “Legao” is consolation enough. Today, the Norwegian singer/producer/musician has shared the beautiful video for the album’s first single “Garota”, which was shot in Seoul, and starring Korean actress Hana Lee.

The album “Legao”, his first record since 2003′s “Unrest”, will contain ten English-language pop tracks, recorded in collaboration with Hjálmar, Iceland’s most popular reggae band, at their studio in Reykjavik. “Legao” will arrive on October 3 via Bubbles Records. You can pre-order your copy here.

Erlend Øye: “La Prima Estate”

Finally something new from our beloved Erlend Øye. After moving to Italy last year, it was only a matter of time before the Norwegian singer/producer/musician Erlend Øye (of Kings of Convenience and the Whitest Boy Alive fame) wrote his first song in Italian. So here’s “La Prima Estate”, a perfect Italian pop track for these hot summer days. La vita è bella.

“La Prima Estate”, a song about his friend Lucia and her day of graduation, was recorded in Berlin, backed by the musicians of The Whitest Boy Alive on bass, drums and synthesizer. Erlend Øye plays the electric guitar and mandolin, while Victor Abrahamsson is responsible for the song’s signature flute melodies. Can we have the new Whitest Boy Alive album now, please?

Erlend Øye’s “La Prima Estate” is out now via Bubbles Records. Get it here.

This new video of Kings Of Convenience’s “Me In You” was shot on Eirik’s roof in Bergen, by Panorama Hardanger. Just perfect! In their own words: “This song is from “Declaration Of Dependence”, that was released almost 2 years ago. We thought it deserved a video and 2 weeks ago the weather-forecast was good. We called up our friends (who has got some rather advanced video shooting equipment) and made this one-take video, on top of Eirik’s roof. The audio is the album-recording of the song. Bergen is not always as nice as this, but it’s days like this that makes us want to live here”. We love it.
