“Skymningsmusik för dagdrömmare” is the fourth studio album by Swedish singer, songwriter and guitarist Henning. The artist, who‘s known in his home land for his guitar driven, Dire Straits- inspired poprock with Swedish lyrics, has created something quite different from what he‘s done before. “Skymningsmusik för dagdrömmare” is a 10 track long, completely instrumental album. With the help from his associated musicians, Henning paints atmospheric, cinematic, and colorful soundscapes where saxophones, mandolins, pianos, and organs complement Henning‘s folk inspired, gentle guitar melodies. The album is a dreamlike experience, and can in many ways be seen as one long song, rather than a collection of individual tracks.
Henning on his new album:
“Skymningsmusik för dagdrömmare means “dusk music for daydreamers.” The album is in a sense a sort of meditation, ten songs with titles representing different constellations, loosely connected musically by their slow pace and folky harmonies. Recorded live in the studio for two days in the darkest and coldest month, January 2021 in Gothenburg on the west Coast of Sweden.”
Henning’s instrumental album “Skymningsmusik för dagdrömmare” is out now on Gaphals. Besides this, Henning also shares the album “Blå Lotus”, a quintessential Henning album with lyrics in Swedish. Both albums are released on the same date, and are available now on all streaming platforms.
