Nordman's vocalist Håkan Hemlin's goes solo and the first single from his upcoming album to be released next spring is "När Stockholm Somnar In" which is already out digitally.
It was rumoured before that Håkan sent entry to Melodifestivalen but it wasn't accepted and before radio-premiere on P4 it was announced that "När Stockholm Somnar In" is that rejected track written by "I Lågornas Sken" songwriters Lina and Mårten Eriksson. It's a charity single aimed to help homeless people.
Talking about the song "När Stockholm Somnar In" has pretty recognizable style for previous Nordman's stuff, it's a Scandinavian dramatic folk-pop ballad with Håkan's utterly special vocal and beautiful melody. Single is already noticed by audience reaching iTunes Top-40 directly after release and serves as fine presentation of Håkan's new album.
You should skip at 25.30 to listen to "När Stockholm Somnar In" in its full length.
