Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008

It is now confirmed that Morten's new solo album, "Letter from Egypt", will be released in Norway on May 19. There are some plans for a wider release but specific countries and dates are not yet finalized. According to an article in today's Dagbladet, a new single called 'Darkspace' will be released next week to radio. This song has been described as an uptempo, rock song.

In the article, Morten says that the album has been ready for a while but that he wanted to do some adjustments. By giving himself some distance from the songs, he was able to see possible improvements, which is the reason for the delay. Morten has used different studios in Europe, Norway and Iceland during the recording.
