Visa Vid Vindens Ängar – Album by Alexander Rybak

The album “Visa vid vindens ängar” by Alexander Rybak and Mats Paulson was released in 2011. The collaboration began when Mats contacted Alexander after having seen a video of him on YouTube where he performed his song “Visa vid vindens ängar”. And so he wanted to thank him for performing his songs and sent Alexander an email. Alexander was grateful for the praise, and later he contacted Mats and the collaboration was a fact.
The album is about enjoying the small things in life and it’s a perfect summer album. Alexander states in the sleeve that he needed a project that brought out the human in him. Below you can hear a taste of the songs.

THANKS!
Marianne & Mats Paulson, for many lovely evenings in Saltsjöbaden. Tone Lise & Knut Bjørnar Asphol, for all hospitality and good food during the recording period in Gjerdrum. My good friends Karl Espegaard, Synøve Mjørnen Knudsen and Andreas Ljones, for lending of string instruments. Svein & Anne Thori Kogstad and Vidar & Anne Louise Bogetvedt Bjerke, for lending of house and barn for photo shootings.

All my great friends, both in and outside the music business! No one named. No one forgotten. You know who I mean.

Last but not least: My beautiful parents who put up with me through thick and thin. Maria, who tries to understand me every day. Pedro, the tallest and darkest lawyer in the business. Kjell Arild, the worlds best neighbor and manager.

Big thanks to my fans.
Without you, I’m nothing.
Thank you for staying!

Alex

  5. Having liked Fairytale so much I decided to find out what else Alexander had done. I discovered the first two albums and Wow! what melodic songs. They are brilliant. I can’t stop listening to them. The only problem is, I want more. Any chance of a new album. I can’t wait.
