Termo Records is very pleased to announce that singer/songwriter Haakon Ellingsen (When, The Last James) is releasing his new album on the 29th of May. After the critically acclaimed albums Bounty and The Plum Album, he is now doing a Norwegian language album, and it is without a doubt his best yet. Combining sunny folk rock with baroque pop arrangements with strings and harpsichords in the proud tradition of The Left Banke and The Beatles, a dash of prog and even a bit of 70's rock swagger a la Led Zeppelin, this album encompasses everything we at Termo like about music.

The album will be called "Orkaner og fuglesang", which translates into "Hurricanes and birdsongs", and features a stellar cast of musicians including producer/keyboardist/drummer Lars Fredrik Frøislie (Wobbler, Tusmørke, White Willow), flautist/arranger Ketil Einarsen (White Willow, Kaukasus, Jaga Jazzist), Wobbler vocalist Andreas Vilthagen on backing vocals, Gosta Berling's Saga guitarist Einar Baldursson, bassist Jacob Holm-Lupo (White Willow, The Opium Cartel) and the talented Hanna Furuseth on strings, to mention a few.

We will soon put the album up for pre-order, so stay tuned.

New music from White Willow

Animal Magnetism

Earlier this year White Willow released the first new music since 2011's Terminal Twilight. The new release is a single, a cover of Scorpions' epic track "Animal Magnetism". It features White Willow's new singer Venke Knutson (know in Norway for her many Top 10 hit singles, and internationally for her contributions on the last The Opium Cartel album) and a guest appearance by world renowned clarinetist David Krakauer. The track was lauded by magazines such a Prog and Metal Hammer, and even endorsed by Scorpions themselves. Buy it here!

White Willow reissue series concludes

Now that we've released Storm Season (Expanded Edition) we put the White Willow reissues to rest. Signal to Noise, Storm Season's successor, is still in print so we see no need to do that one (yet). Thanks for supporting these releases!

Three Winters get some love

Did you pick up Three Winters' fantastic Chroma yet? It's doing victory laps on blogs all over the world. We think it was 2014's best electronica release.
