David Myhr - Soundshine

Video from the recording of the Japan only bonus track “Boom Boom Beat”

With only two days left to the world premiere release of my album Soundshine in Japan I am happy to share with you a glimpse from the recording of an exclusive Japan only bonus track called “Boom Boom Beat”. It was originally written for Puffy so this is my “cover version”. (First time ever I make a cover of my own song!)

The basic tracks were recorded at the drummer Andreas Dahlbäck’s Durango Recording in Stockholm together with Rikard Lidhamn on bass and Anders Pettersson on guitar, and vocal overdubs and mix were made at Marcus Black’s Jelly Road Studio also in Stockholm. On this track I am fortunate enough to have Puffy themselves contributing background vocals (thank you so much Puffy!!!). Their vocals were recorded in Tokyo  and unfortunately I didn’t have the possibility to “stop by” and capture that moment with my iPhone (which is the case with the rest of the material). So the video will be somewhat male-dominated. Anyway – hope you like it!

The only place that you can get hold of “Boom Boom Beat” is on the Japanese version of Soundshine which will be released on Dec 7, 2011, on Thistime Records.
