Two years after It’s Alright Between Us As It Is,  Norwegian producer Hans-Peter Lindstrøm announced the release of a new album. On A Clear Day I Can See You Forever is out on October 11th via Smalltown Supersound. It is the first time ever Lindstrøm has made an album entirely with hardware instead of computer plug-ins.”Really Deep Snow” is a new excerpt. Listen below.

In the autumn of 2018, Lindstrøm composed a commissioned piece for Norway’s premiere art centre, Henie Onstad Kunstsenter. Sketches from the three sold-out performances became the foundation for the four tracks that make up On A Clear Day I Can See You Forever (a title inspired by the 1970’s musical On A Clear Day You Can See Forever starring Barbra Streisand) All of the songs are based on long, one-take recordings. “I felt totally unrestrained making this album,” says Lindstrøm. “I’ve listened to Robert Wyatt’s solo albums and his Matching Mole’s debut album a lot lately. It so effortless, fearless and free. And not insisting. I was very inspired by this

This is also the first time ever Lindstrøm has made an album entirely with hardware instead of computer plug-ins. He utilized 30+ synthesizers and drum machines during his performance at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter. The experience inspired him to embrace a similar set-up when making the album. The accessibility to his enviable collection of music gear – largely consisting of sought after synthesizers – allowed him to experiment freely with ideas and soundscapes. “The joy of making music on actual physical objects and devices makes a lot of sense to me now. After working on a computer for over 15 years, I don’t think I’ll ever look back,” he says.
