Danish singer and songwriter Jacob Bellens presents his fifth solo album, My Heart Is Hungry And The Days Go By So Quickly. Thanks to his unique voice and his talent for heartfelt melodies, over the years Jacob, also known as front man of I Got You On Tape and Murder, has become one of the most distinctive figures on the Scandinavian music scene. Slightly darker in tone than its predecessors Trail Of Intuition (HFN 080CD/LP, 2018) or Polyester Skin (HFN 053CD/LP, 2016), the new album lets us see the world through Jacob's eyes. The new album is somewhere between left-field pop and a classical singer/songwriter approach, the songs were recorded in two sessions with producer Mads Brinch, drummer Tobias Laust, bass player Jonas Westergaard, keyboardist Malthe Rostrup, and guitarist Tobias Fuglsang. "So many good friends and amazing instrumentalists have contributed to the sound," explained Jacob. "And mostly, people were playing what they felt the song needed, which was an incredibly inspiring way of just letting the process develop naturally, and take on a life of its own." As such, the recordings give off a distinct light-footed and organic feel. Rich in metaphors, the lyrics deal with personal perceptions based on everyday life occurrences that at the same time hint at the meaning of life in general -- or at least suggest a higher perspective. The sonic expression is timeless but also modernistic and the lyrical point of view is refreshingly diverse, never just black or white. The sad songs have uplifting, often surreal qualities, and the lighter, up-tempo songs also invite to a certain darkness. A flower basket full of difficult emotions, sprinkled with magical fairy dust that somehow makes everything worthwhile. Includes download code; printed inner sleeve with lyrics.
