Published Nov 25, 2013Swedish electronic artist Eric Berglund is bringing his ceo solo project back to the forefront in 2014, having announced plans to issue an LP dubbed WONDERLAND.
The Tough Alliance member revealed that his next solo set arrives February 4 in North America via Modular, while it comes out a day earlier in Europe and on February 7 in Australia. The LP was produced by Berglund, with assistance from fellow Swedish musicians/producers Dan Lissvik (ex-Studio) and Kendal Johansson.
In the album announcement, Berglund offered up the following statement:
If this don't make you hate me and love yourself, then hate us both, then love me and hate yourself and then the other way around and then the other way again and again until your head spins so much you feel like hopping between neon glowing islands on a quad bike while being attacked by whirlwinds of shurikens too sharp to even hurt you mixed with flying kisses from fairy cheerleaders and all of sudden you hear the sound of laser you know and everything is white for like two seconds with a black and purple strobe in it and then you wake up in a cottage in a sweet bright daze until you start thinking and then all your past crushes and other phantoms slides up from everywhere singing their siren songs and your whole life flashes before not only your eyes but your whole being until you just can't take it anymore and everything around you disintegrates and you find yourself in a void, on that quad bike again, just ridin', feeling everything at once, without resistance, you're doing something wrong
stop doing that
or die trying
ceo is you and you are me and i am ceo aka white panther aka ultra messiah aka mr yeah aka eric aka life aka you
The first teaser track to arrive from the album is the shimmering electro-stomp "WHOREHOUSE," a mix of high-gloss synths, rumbling beats and pop vocals. You can stream the track down below, and it will be up for purchase ahead of the rest of the LP on December 2 (Europe), December 3 (U.S.) and December 6 (Australia).
