The wait is over! At last “Birdcage” has broken free from the cage and flown out in the world, and is now available on iTunes/Apple Music, Spotify and Tidal. Soon you can also buy the album on CD – we’re just in the process of setting up a store here on the website.
It’s been a long journey towards this day. We started working on this album back in 2009, making demos and lining out the main arrangements. One year later we recorded a majority of the backing tracks at Gula Studion in Malmö, a session engineered by the fantastic David Carlsson. Several overdubs – vocals, guitars, keyboards, horns and percussion – followed suit in the years to come. During the process Imla composed some new songs we thought should be on the album, so we laid down the backing tracks for those in Gerhard Kunosson’s Yardhouse Studio in Stockholm. Last, but not least, the album was mastered by Classe Persson at CRP Recording.
We are immensely honoured and grateful to have been able to work with some amazingly talented musicians: Måns Block on drums and percussion, Mats Ingvarsson on bass, Mikael Gökinan on electric guitar, Magnus de Oliveira on acoustic guitar and percussion, Jonas Drejholt on vocals (listen to his magnificent vocal arrangement on All I Really Wanna Be!), Sofie Norling on vocals, Fredrik Kronkvist on saxophones, Petter Lindgård on trumpet and flugelhorn, Jens Lindgård on trombones, Nils Berg on saxophones and bass clarinet, Joel Wästberg on saxophone, and Mulle Holmqvist on electric guitar.
