LIMITED EDITION WHITE VINYL GATEFOLD + EXCLUSIVE POSTER
Release Date: 4th November 2022
"Released via Columbia Records, "Palomino" is the fifth studio album by the Swedish folk sibling duo. Released four years after their previous album 'Ruins', 'Palomino' is an x11 song album & features the singles 'Angel' and 'Out of My Head'. Speaking of the new song, First Aid Kit said: “We wrote this song last year together with songwriter and producer Björn Yttling. It was the first time we wrote for First Aid Kit with someone else and it was very inspiring. The song was written in the spur of the moment, almost like a stream of consciousness. It’s about feeling stuck inside your own thoughts and desperately wanting to escape. “We produced the song with Daniel Bengtson in Stockholm. It has a bit of a different sound from our previous songs. We wanted the production to feel like an old rock song from the 80s. We were inspired by Fleetwood Mac, Kate Bush and Tom Petty. This is one of our favourite songs we’ve ever written, we’re so proud of it and are so excited to finally get to share it.” Discussing their new album in a statement, the duo said: “This is the first record we’ve recorded in Sweden since we made our debut album ‘The Big Black & The Blue’ 12 years ago! We worked with Swedish producer Daniel Bengtson at his lovely studio Studio Rymden in Stockholm. It was such a fun experience. We really let the recording take time, we didn’t want to rush it. “The songs were mostly written during the pandemic. In such dark times, music felt like an escape from all the horrible things going on in the world. We wanted this album to feel more upbeat and cheerful than our previous album Ruins, which was a break-up record."
