The Kings of Convenience finally mentioned a comeback album. I don’t know if “comeback” is the right word but it has been a loooong time since we’ve heard anything out of ’em. “Comeback” makes it seem like they went out of style and let me tell you, that is far from the truth. Their most recent album is Riot on an Empty Street and that came back in 2004. The new album, which is available October 14th is titled Declaration of Dependence…and Erlan Øye is not shy when it comes to explaining what it means. Basically, it is a statement about how the duo (Erland Øye and Erik Glambek) are dependent on each other. Øye explained that everyone is hyped up on being independent and that he feels that it is good to dependon another person.
If you don’t know the band or just need a reminder, here are a few refresher videos.
“I’d Rather Dance with You”
“Homesick” mind you it is just the track with a lame picture but this song is incredibly perfect…
