LP version. Christian Kjellvander's new solo album, About Love And Loving Again, undeniably feels like a big record. The seven songs on this gently unhurried long-player are allowed to build and meander, make unexpected turns, or even pause to look over their own shoulder before moving on, four of them ending way beyond and one just shy of the seven-minute-mark. It comes as a bit of a shock then to learn that this sound that ranges from almost-silence to unbridledly expressive, widescreen hugeness was created mostly as live by a minimal three-piece line-up in a Stockholm studio basement: Per Nordmark on drums; Pelle Anderson on a Fender Rhodes, a Prophet 5, and a Korg Prologue; Christian Kjellvander on vocals, guitars and whatever came to hand, adding just a touch of bass at the end of two songs.

Christian Kjellvander describes a world that is much bigger than his private self, and yet there is a vulnerability. As an artist who is "constantly trying to look under different stones," Christian Kjellvander has learnt to rely on instinct rather than intention.
