Almost two and a half years after the release of his successful album ‘Promises Of No Man’s Land’, Blaudzun returns with his new album ‘Jupiter’ today. Blaudzun explains: ‘My new album is a tryptich; a collection of songs released in three separate parts. These parts will be recorded at different times and studios. It’s really a work in progress, and that’s how it’ll stay until the final part has been released. Part I is now finished, but parts II and III are still in the works'. He recorded the songs live in the studio with band members old and new, producing a fresh sound with melodic eighties guitars, driving drums and a baritone-saxophone. "It's hard to capture the sound of these new songs in a few words; I'd say it's flippant and frivolous, quite flighty and sweltering. I consider it my sexiest album so far."

For these recordings Blaudzun changed his usual modus operandi of working solo or with just one musician at a time. He invited his key players, including his captain Tom Swart (piano), his brother Jakob Sigmond (guitars) and new drummer Simon Levi (known from William Fitzsimmons and Bonne Aparte) to come and record all at the same time. “Recording the songs on Part I asked for a different approach. I wanted to capture the energy and feel that we create when we play live on stage. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, and this way of producing really contributes to a more organic process. I felt excited every day recording with thtese guys, knowing that we would get the best out of these songs."
