When you go to a mountain cabin recording session in the middle of winter with a ramshackle front wheel drive car loaded with gear and you need extra weight up front to clear a particularly nasty hill. #justnorwegianthings ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This beast finished the drum tracks for the entire upcoming album yesterday. He's happy. We're happy. Maybe you're happy too?

Making our first gig announcement of 2017: Aronnesrocken 2017, almost as far north as you can get - and one of our favorite festivals ever. Stay tuned for further updates, dear beliebers.

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.
