When people heard the song that knew about the festival and my own musical career that somewhat failed some years ago in the US (for reasons I couldn’t control) and the struggle – sometimes difficult struggles – that has been over the years they said:
“This song should be the official soundtrack of your festival Simon. A celebration that you didn’t quit, and that hard work pays off. That’s very inspiring.”
I didn’t make that connection myself, see it that way, nor did I plan it. But that’s what they felt.
I haven’t released anything in a long time.
Most people (including myself) always have great expectations with a new release. I don’t with this one. I’m just proud of it.
I think it turned out great. I thank everyone involved who has been a part of the journey so far. I thank everyone who is involved in creating South Ocean Festival with me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
On July 8th I will enter the Main Stage at 14.00 (2 P.M) with these amazing cats Christoffer Olsson Segerberg, Tomas Pettersson, Per Henry Levi Knagg and Magnus Nörrenberg (Dr. Schmutz). We open for Father John Misty, Dina Ögon band , Albin Lee Meldau and Florence + The Machine. What a day.
Enjoy the Try. Hope you like it.
Whatever is on your mind or wherever you’re going, remember this:
“When you believe it, you can find a way and you will never be alone. Can you see it? You’re standing on the edge and all you got to do is try” (lyric in the pre chorus)
