Although I wait for most things anxiously, after playing out Peter von Poehl‘s 2006 album “Going to Where the Tea-Trees Are”, I am “anxiously awaiting” his new release.

The only information regarding the release of his second album can be found in the following un-dated post from his website (when exactly is the “Swedish spring”?), where you can also preview a new song from May Day.  I hope he runs out of money soon so I can buy his new album.

Dear All,

Swedish spring seems to have finally started to get its act together. I’m enjoying my mid day coffee break at my favourite studio: AGM. A day like today with the sun in my eyes (making the typing a bit difficult though) i can’t really complain.

I’m roughly half way through my new record, going under the working title “MAY DAY”. Soon i’ll be running out of money – and conveniently – that’s when this album will be finished. I thought i should give you a glimpse of what’s going on. Here is a demo of a song called ‘Near the end of the world‘. Sorry about the sound quality, but it should give you an idea…

Here’s a favorite from his first album:
Peter Von Poehl – The Story Of The Impossible from Going to Where the Tea-Trees Are, 2006

Peter von Poehl – The Story Of The Impossible Lyrics
Whatever happened to the great escape?
The finest enemy.
Crafted with pride by monsters on the train.
The world is great to suckers.
We have the story of the impossible.
A tale passed on so frail.
One of make-belief.
Maybe impossible to achieve.
And really close.
Who sew the lion’s hungry in the cage?
With the confidence of a clown.
The little man who rises on the stage,
as he falls without a safety net.
We have the story of the impossible
A tale passed on so frail.
One of make-belief.
Maybe impossible to achieve,
but oh so close.
