It’s an old Gyllene Tider tradition to release double A-sided singles; it started with “Flickorna på TV2/Himmel No. 7” and continued with “Ska vi älska så ska vi älska till Buddy Holly/(Dansar inte lika bra som) Sjömän.” Now, this new single will follow that tradition by including two tracks: A-side “En sten vid en sjö i en skog” and the A-side: “Tuffa tider (för en drömmare)” (Tough Times (For a Dreamer)). “Tuffa tider” includes a ukulele and an ocarina, while “En sten…” is a power-pop song á la Gyllene Tider.
We have also found the credits of the full album, Finn 5 Fel! Clarence Öfwerman appears as GT producer for the first time and Christoffer Lundquist did a great work in his studio as producer, technician and mixer. Helena Josefsson features as backing vocals.

Now we have other important news: Chistoffer Lundquist's band, Brainpool, will premiere their long-running "rock opera" this summer in Malmö with a big orchestra. David Birde, Jens Jansson and Christoffer Lundquist have been working in this project since 2000.
By the way, the short-film "Bikini", directed by Lasse Persson, was premiered last month. The music of the film was written by Magnus Börjeson. Bikini is an animated musical starring an young man who is afraid to come out…who is afraid to come out of the locker.

It’s been like going on a very much longed for school trip recording with the Gyllene-guys again. We recorded 15 songs down in Skåne and 14 have made it to the album. Half of them feel like strong singles so it’s been almost impossible to select a single. So we picked two!
