Jacob Bellens brandnew album is finally out! Through all the changes the world is going through right now, there will always be one constant: Music. Because #musicisnotcancelled. Now we're very glad to be able to present to you "My Heart Is Hungry And The Days Go By So Quickly", on amazing sounding vinyl and in digital form. With this album the Danish singer songwriter brings us folky pop songs, that are as catchy as they are very touching. Especially in times like these, dreaming and looking in can be helpful to stay calm when everything else seems chaotic.
Rich in metaphors, Jacob Bellens' lyrics deal with personal perceptions based on everyday life occurrences that at the same time hint at the meaning of life in general - or at least suggest a higher perspective. The sonical expression is timeless but also modernistic and the lyrical point of view is refreshingly diverse, never just black or white. The sad songs have uplifting, often surreal qualities, and the lighter, uptempo songs also invite to a certain darkness.
Comprised of nine excellent songs and (different from its predecessors), recorded in a band-setup - the new album is an exciting rollercoaster ride through the universe of an exceptional singer and songwriter. It’s made to make you dance, to sing along and at times to make you think, always with an encouraging undertone. Jacob Bellens provides a flower basket full of difficult emotions, sprinkled with magical fairy dust that somehow makes everything worthwhile.
Selected press feedback:
"With My Heart Is Hungry And The Days Go By So Quickly, the Danish singer-songwriter Jacob Bellens presents his fifth solo album on April 3rd, which is bristling with heartbreaking melodies and this unique voice that has already in the last years made him one of the most exciting musicians on the Scandinavian music scene."
