SONGS FROM MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM ON SPOTIFY, ITUNES AND TIDAL
Two of the songs i wrote for Alexander Ekman’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream” with the Royal Swedish Ballet are now on Spotify. They are sung by Anna von Hausswolff, with accompaniment by The Dahlkvist Quartet, pianist Henrik Måwe and percussionist Niklas Brommare. Music and lyrics by me. The songs are “How Many More of These” and “They Hoped For A Name (Delta Sleep)”.
