On May 14, Sunday 6pm CET (1pm EST), I will host a little pre-release stream for my new album Eyes on the Edge, and everyone’s invited!
We will be going through the album from start to finish, and you can comment, ask questions, or just sit quietly and listen.
So stop by the chat at that time or any time! :)
Quite a foresty music video for the song Unraveled Lies.
Alright, this is the next song from my upcoming album Eyes on the Edge. It was always among people’s favorites during the demo stages, and I think the end result is pretty nice too.
We originally shot a music video in Manila for this song as well, but the guys who were filming and were supposed to edit it, they stopped getting back to me. So, my friend Pernille and I made this one just a few days ago in a forest next to a tiny tiny Swedish town called Lingbo!
It was fun, and I like how it came out! :)
A video game inspired music video for the prog rock track “The Autotelic Self”.
This video was originally supposed to be posted along the release of my 2014 album Brighter Skies, but things got delayed and I was just about to start my year long travels, so it just never happened. But now feels like a good point to finally post it!
And well, this is pure progressive rock, and one of my favorites among the songs I’ve made throughout the years. :) The original track on the album is 11 minutes, but this is a shortened 7 minute version. The video was made once again by Will Wright (tyokio at hotmail.co.uk), and is obviously meant to look like a video game, but it also follows the message I was trying to convey with the lyrics. I think it turned out great!
A very simple live rendition of Utopia from the upcoming album
I didn’t really plan on posting this one this early, as it’s a very simple and, you could say, unimpressive video. :D But, some of the other videos have gotten into a bit of problem, so I’ll post those at a later time, and I decided to go with this one for now.
I hope you’ll enjoy!
An animation based on a song from the upcoming album “Eyes on the Edge”
This song was originally called “She Looks Like Love” when I first composed it, but it was kind of lame. :D So I rebuilt it to fit a more.. Disney-ish vibe, and thought right away that an animated video would be a good match.
I asked my friend Will Wright (write to him at tyokio at hotmail.co.uk if you want to hire his services!), who had previously made contributions to my Classical Fairytale animated medley. And gladly, he accepted, and did a great job with this one!
These are some of my favorite Disney songs, made into a medley!
I finally felt that I could do a Disney medley justice, and it’s something people have asked me to do for 7 years now!
So here it is, wooooooooooooo! I hope you’ll enjoy.
Here are the chords, if you want to play it on an instrument of choice.
Oh, and do you prefer the hairstyle of guitar Fredde or keyboard Fredde?

So, finally everything is more or less ready! I will be posting new music videos weekly, starting tomorrow! Check out this little talkie video for more info.
The website is still being rebuilt and optimized, so give it another day or so, please. :) And don’t forget to say hi in the chat!
Bad news: For reasons too long to explain (but basically: With the current youtube network I’m on, I can’t monetize covers), I have decided to postpone everything; the album, the new music videos, the marketing plan, until April-May.
It just seems like a dumb idea to post videos I’ve worked on a lot, without getting any money from them. The contract with my current network expires in april, so after THAT, I’m good to go!
The good thing about this, perhaps, is that I have a few more months to prepare everything, make even more videos, and make sure that April-May-June will be packed with new content. :)
Thanks for your patience!
