Album Description

Pressrelease THE WORLD WE KNOW (EB MUSIC 2010). Now Erik Borelius is back with The World We Know. Melodic as always with depth in the arrangements – his intention is to create music that grows with each listening. Erik sings again and the lyrics tell stories about the modern man and his inability to let things take time in Make Time, of bullying in The Sisters, about the problem of knowing whether to say YES or NO and about Erik´s strong ties to the Stockholm Archipelago in This Island. Of course, the guitar has a prominent role on The World We Know. On the title track it carries the bluesy riff throughout the song and on This Island two dozen full-bodied acoustic guitars create a shimmering presence. In Back to You, one can hear Erik’s Latin-inspired virtuosity and on his version of the famous Swedish folk-song Värmlandsvisan he mixes soft tones from the nylon stringed guitar with the ever-distinctive electric guitar. Pär Hedtjärn plays the drums and Rebecca Zätterström sings backing vocals. Aare Pöder plays the piano on This Island. The beautiful album design was created by art director Johan Adelstål with stunning images from the Stockholm archipelago by photographer Petter Karlberg.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
