ARTISTdirect has teamed up with Robert Dahlqvist, former guitar player of highly touted, now-defunct garage rockers The Hellacopters, to premiere his song "Vi Tar Båten" from Solo, out October 2.
"The song was originally recorded by the band, The Soundtrack of Our Lives, for their first album, but it never ended up on the album," the Swedish guitarist told us. "My producer Björn played an instrumental version on his solo album Shrimp. I've always like the track and asked if could have it on my solo album. He instantly jumped at the idea. I wrote the lyrics when I actually sat down and took a boat trip out to Björkö, an island in the northern archipelago of Gothenburg, Sweden, in the spring, when I was born again in love."
We feel that it's important to mention that Solo is an album that is sung entirely in the Swedish tongue.
But don't let the language barrier scare you away. Just enjoy the song. It rocks.
