Fjärilar i magen - Live från Cirkus

After surprise-releasing an acoustic EP last week, Darin is releasing his first live album on July 7th, called Fjärilar i magen - Live från Cirkus which he recorded, as the album title suggests, at Cirkus, in Stockholm, earlier this year during his successful Spring Tour.

Fjärilar i magen has been the most successful album Darin has released in his entire career, achieving a platinum certification and charting in the Sverigetopplistan Top 60 for a record-breaking 40 weeks (as of today).
