Thomas Dybdahl checked in with his Facebook fans on January 23rd, talking about about the follow-up to his 2010 release ‘Waiting for That One Clear Moment’. The Norwegian singer songwriter is teaming up with Larry Klein on the project, who has produced material for Tracy Chapman, Madeleine Peyroux and Melody Gardot. Dybdahl writes:
In LA for a month to write and record for the next album. LOVING California, what a beautiful place! Some crazy people, that’s true…
Thomas Dybdahl appeared on NPR’s All Things Considered, where the Norwegian singer songwriter talked about how he hopes to catch on in America, creating about all of his songs in English, not wanting his music to be over-produced, the tragic shootings and bombing by Anders Brevik in Oslo, and living in New York City briefly in his 20s.
“A lot of it has to do with English as an instrument – the way the language sounds, the way that you’re used to playing it,” Thomas said about his attraction to singing in English. “You know the different sounds and you know the different words and how they sing and which words sing better than others. There’s something there that makes me look at it almost like an instrument, not really a decision as to whether I should sing in Norwegian or in English.”
