Sondre Lerche's Heartbeat Radio will be released on September 8, 2009 and it's said to be a start of a new chapter for the Bergen, Norwegian singer-songwriter. The first track "Good Luck" is a sum up of the recording of this album over the last couple of years, including moving to Brooklyn, NY, greencard issues, providing the soundtrack to Dan in Real Life and going indie again.
According to his myspace, "I thought this time I'd just make the album, and see who was interested when I was finished." He laughs. "And I didn't want to go to anyone before I was finished – it seemed disingenuous to say, 'I don't have music, but I have these songs in my dreams.' They probably could care less about my dreams!"
Or do they? Even though he describes himself as "just me, doofus!" on his myspace, we know he's capable of musical greatness.
