Sofia Talvik checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@sofiatalvik) on Sunday (March 28), discussing her new album ‘Florida’, set for release on May 12th, and its cover art. The Swedish singer songwriter tells readers:
I was living in Florida for a few months last year and wrote a bunch of songs and started recording them in my walk in closet that I had turned into a small recording studio. One of the very first weeks of my stay it rained non stop for a whole week. I was trapped inside with a monsoon outside and had nothing better to do than to play the guitar. So I wrote what later became the title track of the new album ‘Florida’.
Sofia Talvik checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@sofiatalvik) on Tuesday (March 23), discussing how she’s wrapping up her tour. The Swedish singer songwriter tells readers:
It’s the last day of our tour. To be honest it was probably the last day Saturday as we did our last gig then. We had a great time playing for a wonderful crowd at the Wyndham Hotel. It feels a little sad to go home, but I’m also longing so much for my husband that I can’t wait to get on the plane.
My favorite gigs have been The Mint, The Swedish Showcase and probably our last gig at the Wyndham. But few memories from this tour will be stronger than meeting Suzanne Vega in person. That was way cool!

The first single is due to be released in March so keep your ears and eyes open!

“I wanted to be alone and try out stuff without people listening and judging me,” Talvik explained. “So I set up this little studio in my closet, and I’m going to show it to you now. You can see here I got the mic set up in the corner. Put some pillows on top of the shelf to make it less echoey. This is where I record right now.”
