KAIPA - Sommargryningsljus

(Inside Out 2024) Limited CD Mediabook with extensive 24-pages booklet, Gatefold 180g 2LP & as Digital Album

Legendary Swedish progressive folk-fusion-rockband KAIPA returns in June 2024 with their 15th studio album “Sommargryningsljus”.

Sommargryningsljus contains eight tracks portraying a nocturnal journey from dusk until dawn, with the first two tracks representing the twilight and the closing two indicating dawn. This nighttime odyssey can be seen as a metaphor for the state between death and rebirth, or as an allegory of life told in reverse.

As a bonus track Sommargryningsljus (single edit) is included where the entire song can be heard as it was originally written including Sommarskymningsljus.
