Singled Out: Thomas Dybdahl

Today Thomas Dybdahl tells us about his new single "Cecilia" from his brand new album "Songs". Here is the story:

Every album usually starts with one particular song being written, that then inspires the rest and sets a precedent. Cecilia was one of those songs and when it was finished I had a clearer idea of where I was musically at the time. The song was very inspired by "Sultans of Swing" by Dire Straits. Me and my band had a serious hangup on that song at the time and played it on tour just about every day. We loved the groove and the feel to it and also that it was a great driving song! I don't think I really thought about it, but it must have been in the back of my head when writing Cecilia. Funny how those things work, impossible to really hide your inspirations. The song was recorded in my living room with everyone playing live together. This is very unusual for me, as I normally just build rack like giant puzzles, recording piece by piece until I have so much that I have to start peeling away to get to the core of things. So this was very different for us and there were some compromises to be made, soundwise, in order to be able to catch the feeling we wanted. But it ended very genuine and spur of the moment feeling.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
