On this his 3rd album, he sings in Swedish for the first time, even if 5 of the songs are in English in this international issue.
A somewhat timeless mix of influences, it shows why artists in Brazil, France, Sweden and Japan have also chosen to cover his songs. Influences range from French chanson (C'est La Vie), loop-like Western-African guitars (Allt Har Sin Tid), polyrhythmic bossanova landscapes (Jabuticaba), Cuban scents (As If It's Never Taken Place), pop, reggae, bossanova and the miniature song I Guess It's OK, by this time a standard feature on his albums (comparing these short songs to haiku poems).
Featuring Roman Andrén (rhodes, wurlitzer, hammond), Karin Hammar (trombone) and Olle Linder (bouzouki, bass, drums), and mastered by Brazilian mastering wizard Ricardo Garcia.
