Haakon Ellingsen, known for his work with When/Lars Pedersen and The Last James among other things, is releasing his first album in the Norwegian language. His previous, critically acclaimed solo efforts have been in English. He is joined by a very strong ensemble of some of Scandinavias finest musicians, including Wobbler's Lars Fredrik Frøislie on keys and drums, Ex-Jaga Jazzist/Motorpsycho flautist Ketil Einarsen, Gösta Berlings Saga guitarist Einar Baldursson, White Willow's Jacob Holm-Lupo on bass guitar and a host of other musicians. Musically the album ranges from delicate, Left Banke-like baroque pop via melancholy pastoral folk rock in an early Genesis vein to outright retro rock hinting at Led Zeppelin. The album has been produced and engineered to audiophile standards by Lars Fredrik Frøislie. You can hear a teaser here!

New album from Haakon Ellingsen

Haakon Ellingsen: Orkaner Og Fuglesang

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.

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!
