"After two years of work since my last album 'Bremort', a new album is finished. This time, the record is about Naima, an entity who in different ways is present to the persons on the album. Sometimes she interferes with their lives and speaks directly to them, sometimes her presence is only communicated through her musical theme, Naimamelodin (Naima's melody). Somewhat pretentiously expressed, the album is an answer to a longing for more fixed references. In less joyous times, I often wish for someone or something that could tell me how to be and behave, and through this advice free me from responsibility and thoughts about whether my acts are right or wrong. Someone who says: 'You ought to do like this, it is just the way it is'. Imagine how wonderful it would be if there was an entity with a pelican's head who one had endless confidence in and who one could ask for advice every time one did not know what to do. In 2004 Hans Appelqvist released the album "Bremort" which got a lot of attention and among other things won the Swedish Radio's Pop Record of the Year award. The record was staged in a fictitious small city in Sweden, where one as a listener could follow daily life during three days for some of the people living there. Hans Appelqvist has previously released "Att möta verkligheten" on Häpna." (label info)
