Nattflykt – Debut Album Released

Hansan - Nattflykt - Album Cover

The day is here! We just released our debut album “Nattflykt” on all major platforms.

“Nattflykt” is self-composed, and will make you think of everything from Jazz to old traditional folk songs. The inspiration comes from the raging seas and the Swedish magical forests.

To make the whole album varied and exciting with just vocals and cello as the only components, we have experimented with mould-breaking arrangements and chord changes that pick elements from both classical chamber music to jazzy grooves. A fifth string on the cello increases the depth of the soundscape and gives it an extra character of bass, and the different layers convey the feeling of an entire orchestra.

Modern yet traditional, light yet heavy – Hansan makes their own niche in Nordic Folk Music.

The album is also available on CD and can be ordered directly form us here:

Sjung min lilla näktergal

Hansan - Sjung min lilla näktergal

We’re releasing a new single.

“Sjung min lilla näktergal” is a song about the difficult journey from a war ravaged country to peace – both mentally and physically.

With today’s debates about closed or open borders, about walls and cages, it’s even more important to tell this story. A story about the people that came to a new country and helped to build it. A story about freedom. A story about a new chance. Sing – until the song is heard.

Release date: April 23rd.

Lyrics:
Vågor ritar mönster på en strand
Dina läppar skälver mot min hand
Natten faller i vårt sommarland
När vi kastar loss

Jag viskar ditt namn
När vi lämnar hamn

Havet tar oss dit vi ska
Jag kan lämna allt jag har för dig
Havet vaggar oss till sömns
Du är verklig du är dröm för mig

Gryningsljuset målar allting grått
Suddar sakta allting vi förstått
Som om dagen är ett frö vi sått
När vi kastar loss

Jag viskar ditt namn
När vi lämnar hamn

Havet tar oss dit vi ska
Jag kan lämna allt jag har för dig
Havet vaggar oss till sömns
Du är verklig du är dröm för mig

Havet tar oss dit vi ska
Jag kan lämna allt jag har för dig
Havet vaggar oss till sömns
Du är verklig du är dröm för mig

Natten faller i vårt sommarland
Gjort av vatten, gjort av sten och sand
När vi kastar loss

Jag viskar ditt namn
En sista gång
