We’re delighted to be working with Sweden’s Albert af Ekenstam for the first time!

Gothenburg-born Albert af Ekenstam released his new EP Hundred Miles this August. The EP contains four tracks, including Our Stories, which was released earlier this summer.

‘This EP was written and recorded during an in-between period in life; I went into the musical process without a clear idea and let the recording process take the songs where they wanted to go,’ says Albert af Ekenstam. ‘I recorded them in Dalarna in Sweden at my friend Daniel Ögrens studio during a couple of days last spring. On top of that, friends like Ulrik Oding, Sumie Nagano, Ane Brun and Filip Leyman, have also in different ways contributed to the recording.’

The debut album Ashes was released on Kning Disk in 2016 to critical acclaim, followed by invitations to showcase festivals all over Europe (including Reeperbahn Festival, The Great Escape and Eurosonic) and touring mainly in Germany and the UK.

Albert has not been touring as much since the winter of 2017 and instead been focusing on songwriting for this EP and the forthcoming second album, to be released during 2019. The Hundred Miles EP partly shows a new side of Albert, more calm and more focused on songwriting.
