‘Music For People In Trouble’

By on September 13, 2017

Last Friday, the Norwegian singer-songwriter and producer Susanne Sundfør released her critically acclaimed album ‘Music For People In Trouble’. It’s Sundfør’s most personal and moving album so far and the tribute has not been awaiting.

“Her new album is the strongest so far” – 5/6 Jan Gradvall, DI Weekend

“Really just pure magic” – 6/6 GAFFA

“It was long since I heard music that made me as calm as the smell of toast but at the same time made me think.” – 4/5 Aftonbladet

“A bold about turn for electro-pop Norwegian singer.” – 4/5 Q Magazine

“Another triumph for Sundfør, who delivers complex subjects with lightness 
and majesty.” – 4/5 The Guardian

“Sundfør excels on this mighty fifth album…. A career-defining album of the year 
contender.” – 4/5 Daily Mirror 

Inspiration for the album came on a journey Susanne made from North Korea to the Amazon jungles during which she drew attention to politically conflicting worlds and the environment.

“We are living in a time of great changes. Everything is moving so rapidly, sometimes violently, sometimes dauntingly. I think a lot of people experience anxiety these days. I wanted to address these emotions on the album.” (Susanne Sundfør)
