about

More than 50.000 copies sold to this moment are good prove of CAMERA OBSCURA's ascending career. The first single out from the new album, "Lloyd, I'm ready to be heartbroken", is a country soul track with a fantastic ending part where Tracyanne manages to sing up to six choruses! As for the exclusive B-sides, "Phil and Don" (a tribute to the EVERLY BROTHERS?) is a country duet with great guitar work and some harmonica thrown in for good luck. And "Roman holiday" has a bossanova beat and a vibraphone arrangement that give it the perfect stylish touch for a song too good to be just a B-side. If these are their B-sides, imagine how good is the album!

The band recorded the album track in Sweden with the help of producer Jari Haapalainen (Ed Harcourt, THE CONCRETES) and a great team of people with whom they've worked in the country's best studios: some of the string musicians have recently toured with Brian Wilson or Arthur Lee & LOVE; the song was recorded in the same studios where Neneh Cherry or Robyn have previously recorded, and it was mixed at the same place used by THE MAGIC NUMBERS or Per Gessle from ROXETTE fame. Among the contributors to these songs we find Victoria Bergsman from THE CONCRETES, singer-songwriter Brita Persson or members of Swedish pop bands such as THE TOURETTES, LAAKSO or SPEEDMARKET AVENUE.

Track Name: Lloyd, I'm Ready To Be Heartbroken
He said “I’ll protect you like you are the crown jewels” yet
Said he’s feeling sorrier for me the more I behave badly
I can bet

Hey Lloyd I’m ready to be heartbroken
I can’t see further than my own nose at the moment

Jealousy is more than a word now I understand
I know you can stay a girl by holding a boy’s hand

Hey Lloyd I’m ready to be heartbroken
I can’t see further than my own nose at the moment
Hey Lloyd I’m ready to be heartbroken
I can’t see further than my own nose at the moment

I’ve got my life of complication here to sort out
I’ll take myself to an east coast city and walk about

Hey Lloyd I’m ready to be heartbroken
I can’t see further than my own nose at the moment
Hey Lloyd I’m ready to be heartbroken
I can’t see further than my own nose at the moment
Hey Lloyd I’m ready to be heartbroken
I can’t see further than my own nose at the moment
Track Name: Phil And Don
Phil and Don
What went wrong?
I see no reason to go on

I’ll take the slack from you
Give all my love to you
I’d break my back for you
It’s not enough, I know

Phil and Don
The saddest song
It breaks my heart to sing along.

I’ll take the slack from you
Give all my love to you
I’d break my back for you
It’s not enough, I know

Phil and Don
I’ll say so long
So very nearly made me strong
You very nearly made me
Track Name: Roman Holiday
I’ve never had a Roman holiday
But I won’t hold it against you
The look on your face when she told you she loved you
Was it priceless?

Now it seems you’re well connected
You have your own flock of sheep
I don’t think they are lost and I don’t think they are discreet

I light a scented candle in my room
I’ll hold a good thought for you
You were hopeful you said things would be ok
But they’re doom and gloom

If I were good at hating I’d hate you
If I were good at loving I’d fall
I’d keep the company of a kid obsessed and I’d tell them all

I knew you well for a short spell
I knew you well for a short spell
Please don’t tell
