I ett pressmeddelande berättar Anna von Hausswolff om albumet:
– I was texting back and forth with my friend Albin Oskarsson. He wanted me to come and play at a jazz festival that he was living nearby, it was Montreux Jazz Festival. At that point, I was still quite unknown outside Sweden, and regardless of my friend’s many attempts to contact the festival they never returned to him with an offer. I gave up the idea, he did not. Later that same year, he unexpectedly died and a few years later, in 2017, an email popped up in my inbox. It was a request to open for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds at the Montreux Jazz Festival. The tragedy that Albin was still not around to share the excitement with me gave me sorrow.
But, through the magic of music, comfort came. The show was an emotional turmoil of ecstasy and grief, shared with an incredible audience and atmosphere. And, eventually, I could see his face in the venue, floating above all others, smiling and waving towards me. I’m so happy to have been given this moment and I’m beyond grateful to Montreux Jazz Festival, John Harris and Mathieu Jaton, who so beautifully recorded this special concert that I will keep close to my heart forever and ever.
