Off to Manila

Off to Manila in the beginning of August for massive promo for my new album + opening for Tears For Fears in Araneta Coliseum.

This time I'll be joined by Erland Hansen (guitar), Kristian Kvaksrud (bass) and my son Oskar Holldorff (keys/background voc.). I'm happy to announce that local musicians Neil Baruelo (percussion/background voc.) and Maki Ricafort (drums/background voc.), stars in their own right, will join us too.

Per Sorensen's reflections on his new album "Master of Imperfection":

"People always come up to me, asking which direction my new songs will take this time around. It's pretty tempting then, to say: -To the left.

I started writing songs at the age of twelve, I think. When we could afford bying a piano. I guess I've always sought to find my own expression through the way I play the piano, my voice and the composition combined; like a pyramid, if you like, or a triangle.

Once having found your expression, you'll never leave it. Some artists choose to go on an expedition into other musical territories for an album, just for the fun of it, still you can always tell who they are, and what they sound like.

A rather badly kept secret is that I fell in love with Carole King at the age of twelve. With her music, as well. And I still love the sound on her album Tapestry.

Today's music, at least hit music, tends to lack of the organic sound that I like so much; guys & gals playing live, no processed voices, songs with more than three or four chord changes going through the whole bloody thing!

Master of Imperfection reflects my view on these things: I even play the drums this time, quite simply because there are no one that knows the songs better than I do .

Today's mantra, Ladies & Gents: Play for the track!

There is always a vulnerability to my voice, melancholia pouring down the cracks of these tracks. So also on my new album. It's in the lyrics (Kari Iveland's, mostly), in the music and in my voice. This is me, folks. If you like this style, this is the record for you.

In 1986 I wrote the song Beauty and Madness with lyricist Rune Kristoffersen for the upcoming Fra Lippo Lippi album Light and Shade (1987). You're either too young to remember, or too old, for that matter. Anyway, I love that song, so I re-recorded it for this album. Hope you like it, too!

I have always had the pleasure of going back to the Philippines for record releases and live gigs. I enjoy a tremendous following there. Therefore, I wanted to release an album tailormade for my Filipino fans. This took place in 2002.

One of the songs, Later, was to become my biggest hit ever, Fra Lippo Lippi included. 4 million hits on YouTube, topping the charts in The Philippines, sold out shows and all.

A shame not to share it with the rest of the world, then. Subsequently, you'll find Later on the album, too.

Six brand new songs, one cover ( James Taylor's Fire and Rain) and three "old" songs of my own.

Altogether ten songs which, hopefully, will lift your soul for some forty minutes. These days that's a hell of a lot of time!

I love doing gigs, and I will of course perform the greatest songs of Fra Lippo Lippi and Per Sorensen live. Like a pre-listening? Run to your local record store or computer to BUY Per Sorensen: Master of Imperfection".

Enjoy!
