Background Story

The cover is an always loading image of the aurora borealis in Tromsø, city where the 2 members of Röyksopp are from. I simply wanted to represent my favourite tracks of the album all together. “Only this moment” - “49 Percent” - “What else is there”. The last one is a featuring with Karin Dreijer Andersson, the voice of The Knife, and also known for her solo project Fever Ray. All about this song is good. The melody, the singer’s voice, the lyrics, the video and also Trentemøller’s remix. Which I played sometimes in my few (very very few) nights as a dj.
