Himadree

This band from Denmark gave some of the most memorable songs of the 1990s — Paint My Love, 25 Minutes, Breaking My Heart and Someday.

Lead vocalist and keyboardist Jascha Richter, drummer Kåre Wanscher and guitarist Mikkel Lentz speak with HT City about their new album, Asian inspirations and more…

So what’s so special about his album?
It’s the first time that we have released an album on our own label. Also, we have recorded some songs that were written almost 20 years ago.

How important is the Asian audience for MLTR?
We must admit that in the back of our minds, we always have this thing that Asian fans have to like our album. Though it’s hard to predict the audience’s taste, we just pray that our fans should not be disappointed.

The final track on the album, Eternity, has no lyrics. Why so?
Mikkel, our guitarist, has produced this track and it’s very close to his heart. The track was originally used as an introduction to our live shows in a slightly different version. We know it is not possible to play the track on radio, but we just thought that we should do something new and different.

Any inspirations for the music of this album?
I think we were majorly inspired by our travels across Asia and other places. Also, we’d like to add one thing that we noticed — Asians are much better with their instruments!
