Janove's tour is almost over - and I finally got to see him in Trondheim. Here's my report!

It took a long time, but now they are finally online: The lyrics of Janove's solo album "Artisten & Marlene" with translations! Both in German and in English ... phew! As always, I'm thankful for all help and comments regarding translation errors or typos. And now, get going learning the lyrics by heart in time for the start of the tour this week!

It's out! Janove's solo album "Artisten & Marlene" was released on Friday. It's available on all the usual streaming platforms and of course available as CD and LP as well (for example, from cdon.com, Platekompaniet, BigDipper, and thegarden.no). You can find the lyrics on Janove's website and of course here - the remaining translations will be added as soon as possible.

Of course, there was quite a bit of media coverage in Norway around the release. Here's an overview (which will probably be updated the next couple of days; (+) indicates a pay wall):

The release date of "Artisten & Marlene" is approaching fast, and I thought that we all want to know a bit more about the album, right? So here you go! Here's a short email interview with Janove for you - enjoy!

I also got two small updates for you: I've added the newest concerts and festivals to the tour list, so that should be pretty much up-to-date. One date that is not in the list but that you might want to note down is February 10 - not only because that is the release date of the album, but also because Janove will be a guest on the Norwegian TV show Lindmo that evening. If you're interested in attending the recording of the show, you can still get tickets here (at least right now).

In just a bit over a month, we'll finally get to hear some new music by the hands of Mr. Ottesen again - and even though this here is a Kaizers fansite and Janove alone isn't Kaizers Orchestra, I assume that most of you guys won't mind getting a bit of information about Janove's solo album here as well, right? =;-)

So here are the current facts in a nutshell:
  • The album will be called "Artisten & Marlene". It will be released (in Norway) on February 10th.
  • It tells the love and live story of two dancers - I summarized some more details here a while ago. But to get the full story, we'll probably need to wait for the release of the album.
  • You can already preorder the album, for example at Platekompaniet or cdon.com. Both sell it as CD and LP.
  • The tracklist has been released as well:
    1. Marlene (Marlene)
    2. Verden Går Til Helvete (The world is going to hell in a handbasket)
    3. Spinner For Deg (Spinning for you)
    4. I Siget (On a roll)
    5. Perler & Svin (Pearls & swine)
    6. Aldri La De Tru De Er Bedre Enn Deg (Never let them think they are better than you)
    7. Et Hjerte Som Sloss (A heart that beat)
    8. Me Vokser Aldri Opp (We will never grow up)
    9. Mine Siste Berømte Ord (My last famous words)
    10. Om Me Går Ner (If we go down)
    11. Vår Uendelige Sang (Our neverending song)
    12. Regnbuen Treffer Oss Ikkje Lenger (The rainbow doesn't hit us anymore)
    13. I Natt Blir Du Fri (Tonight you'll be free)
    14. Trixing & Fixing (Trixing & Fixing)
    15. Det Ville Vært En Sensasjon (It would have been a sensation)
  • The first four singles have been released already; you can find the lyrics and translations of those songs here.
  • The playing time of the album is a full 71 minutes!
  • After the release of the album, Janove will go on tour - and in summer, he'll play at loads of Norwegian festivals. You can check out all the dates that have been announced so far here.
So it seems we have quite a bit to look forward to!
