"Tvillingen": the New Album Out November 24

Image
We have a release date! Darin's new album is titled "Tvillingen", just as one of his latest singles, and is out worldwide on November 17th"It's an album that reflects different sides of me. It's my most personal album so far and it is reflected in the fact that every song has a different own world", says Darin.

The album was previously described as a follow-up to "Fjärilar i magen", Darin's first studio album to be entirely in Swedish. As you can see from the cover, the whole album concept is in fact very similar to the previous.

EDIT: The release has been postponed to November 24.

'Nya Låten!' Podcast Interview: "The new album will be out in November"

Yesterday Darin was interviewed in Pontus de Wolfe's podcast Nya Låten! (The New Song!). Apart from mainly talking about Alla ögon på mig, Darin also asked his fans for help and revealed new information about his upcoming album. We summarized the interview below:

"Alla ögon på mig" and "Tvillingen" Lyrics and Translation

Image
"Alla ögon på mig" and "Tvillingen" are two of the most personal songs Darin has ever written. We decided to translate the lyrics of both in order to make international fans understand them and get to know this side of Darin.

ALLA ÖGON PÅ MIG

Den svenska drömmen, jag var 17 år
En vanlig kille blev en ny idol
O en natt förändra' allt
All denna kärlek, alla hårda slag
Är sånt som aldrig kommer bli normalt
Jag försöker hålla mig kvar

Men det e lätt att jag fastnar
Fastnar i bilder som inte är jag

Ljuset på, för alla ögon ser på mig
Vandrar åren ut som än en akt för dig
Det är ensamt hemma fast än alla kan mitt namn
Livet som jag valt kan va så jävla kallt ibland

Som i en film som alla tittar på
De följer med men från ett annat håll
Hur jag känner vet ingen annan om
Jag var produkten som blev kött o blod
Vägen dit var värd den tid det tog
Att kämpa för att växa upp

ALL EYES ON ME

The Swedish dream, I was 17 years old
An ordinary guy became a new idol
And on…

Darin's interview and piano performance at SVT Kulturnyheterna

Image
Darin was interviewed by SVT Kulturnyheterna about one of the singles, "Alla ögon på mig".
He talked about his journey as an artist through the years, that there were people who loved him and people who hated him. "All ögon på mig" was a chance for him to finally open up about this subject and it feels good for him to finally let his feelings out through this song.

Watch his interview at this link and a piano performance of "All ögon på mig" below:

"Alla ögon på mig" and "Tvillingen" Worldwide Release

Image
Darin's new singles "Alla ögon på mig" and "Tvillingen" are now out worldwide! They are the second and third single off his new album which will probably drop in October.
The singles are released through Darin's own label Dex Music and distributed by Sony Music Entertainment Sweden.


"Alla ögon på mig"("All eyes on me") is a poweful slow-tempo song that talks about the downside of being famous and the paradox of feeling lonely even though you have all eyes on you. Darin sings "The life I've chosen can be so damn cold sometimes".
Listen on Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal.



"Tvillingen"("The Twin") is a catchy up-tempo song about having a double personality and choosing to show only what you want your viewers to see.
Listen on Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal.
