Kristofer Âström returns to the northern blues with his new album Hard Times, the melancholic Scandinavian version of the Americana genre. For 20 years already Aström embodies the popular Nordic songwriter from Sweden. Following three full band albums (Go, Went, Gone 1998, Leaving Songs and Northern Blues 2001) he began a phase when he concentrated on acoustic solo recordings, as showcased on his EP trilogy from 2003-2006 (Black Valley, Dead End, and There For). Hard Times now is the tenth studio album by the artist and it's a return to his roots. By the way, the album title had already been chosen before the Covid-19 disaster hit the world. It's inspired by a country song by Stephen Foster, "Hard Times Come Again No More". Âström: "Though the music on Hard Times is not country, it certainly has the feeling of it."
