In just under two weeks, the title track from our new album will emerge from some strange sector of the multiverse in the form of sound waves gently dancing down your ear channels. In there, a series of strange vibrations and fluid movements will commence, creating nerve impulses that carry through the auditory nerve into your auditory cortex for interpretation. We have tried very hard to sculpt sound waves that will be pleasing to your temporal lobe, and hope you are as excited as us that we soon are launching this song into the world! Soon you'll get to join us inside our Blackbox..

New single: Madeleine Crumbles

Today we bring you the most exalted of news: The first single from our fourth studio album has finally been released. Madeleine Crumbles is a five minute exploration of symphonic pop melancholia, touching some musical realms we haven’t really ventured into before. That’s where we’re always most comfortable – somewhere we’ve haven’t been before. You can find the song on Spotify or any kind of service you may find preferrable. The song features Linn Frøkedal (The Megaphonic Thrift) on guest vocals, plus a host of other guest musicians, and has been mixed by Yngve Sætre. Lyrics here.

Lyrics, lyrics, lyrics!

Some of you may have noticed that this website has gotten a bit of a new look lately.

It is very much a work in progress, and the makeover is nowhere near complete. But do note that we’ve finally gotten around to publishing all the official Major Parkinson lyrics.

A lot of you have been asking us about releasing these things, and while we’ve been amused by all the wrong lyrics that have been put out on the internet over the years, we kind of figured we had to set the record straight. We know it’s kind of hard to decipher what we’re saying at times.

So, go on, enjoy yourself, now there’s no excuse for singing the wrong lyrics.
