I'm happy to announce that I have been invited to do some shows together with Gus, Uli and their band in March. After much studio work lately, and as a contrast to the dark winter months here in Scandinavia, I'm looking very much forward to spending some time in the sun, and of course, to bring the rock!
Previously unreleased music videos from live footage with Jorn. These three different edits were put together shortly after the release of the music video for "Traveller", but never uploaded until now.
"At the time we didn't see these videos as official music videos, since they were all based on live footage and live images.
We thought they would be more suitable as bonus material in connection with a future compilation or as something extra on the next studio album.
Jorn Lande attending the opening ceremony of historic sun mirrors in his city of birth, Rjukan, Norway
On wednesday October 30th, Jorn Lande took part in the official opening ceremony to celebrate the sun mirrors in Rjukan.
This installation consists of three giant mirrors, designed to reflect the sun down to the town center during the dark winter months. Controlled by computers, the three tilted mirrors follow the course of the sun to bring sunshine to Rjukan's main square below.
The natural sunlight doesn't reach down to the town of Rjukan from early October to the middle of March, leaving the valley in constant shadow. Every year in March thousands of people take to the streets in a carnival to celebrate the suns return, the yearly "solfest".
2013 has been a rollercoaster of new experiences that has given me strength and confidence, and I'm ready for everything 2014 has to offer!
2014 already has many things in store for me, and I'm truly grateful and happy for the opportunities life has given me so far.
Let's all hope for good health, remember to think positive, give lots of love, and of course: let's keep on bringing the rock!
Thank you for your love and support, it's what keeps me going!
