Sony Music Sweden recently signed the talented and critically acclaimed singer songwriter, Markus Svensson a.k.a. "The Tarantula Waltz". November 8th is the release of the Tarantula Waltz' 5th album Kallocain. A natural follow-up to his previous embraced album Blue As In Bliss (2017).
First single Fallin' will be released on September 27th. "This song came to me one a February morning when I tried to put on both my kids their overalls. Suddenly I had the whole song in mind. It felt very obvious. It's a 'us against the world song'. When I got home that day I sat down at the piano and then the whole song was there. I have a hard time talking about the lyric because I think it speaks better for itself." - Markus.
The album is inspired by Swedish author and poet Karin Boye's book about the truth-serum Kallocain - the dizzying idea of total sincerity. Markus felt a strong need to make an album without filters. The writing process was therapeutic after a suddenly changed life situation. The need to cope with the situation became much stronger than the need to please other people with new music.
