Temptation will Release Tor Dybdahl’s
First Solo Album «World Astray» (LP, CD, and Digital)
Since the beginning in 1985 Mr. Dybdahl has continued to release records with his bands Clockwork Orange, Downers, The French Connection, Horsemen and a solo single on his Temptation label.
With "World Astray" Mr. Dybdahl takes a step back from his frequent electronic soundscape to his roots growing up in the 70’s and 80’s. You can trace inspiration from The Velvet Underground, Lou Reed and David Bowie in its variation of dark, but still catchy, pop songs. Recording with a traditional rock quintet adds a new dimension to Mr. Dybdahl’s excellent songwriting. The lyrics reveal a burning social-political engagement in a world obviously gone astray.
The album is produced by Kjartan Kristiansen (DumDum Boys, Stein Torleif Bjella) who also plays guitar and sings. "World Astray" is recorded at Amper Tone with Bård Ingebrigtsen (Gallowhill, Sirens and Us, Valkyrien Allstars) as engineer and multi-instrumentalist. Other participating musicians are Aslak Dørum (Follow That Dream, DumDum Boys), Mikael Lindqvist (My Midnight Creeps, Sivert Høyem, DumDum Boys), Nils Jørgen Nilsen (Honningbarna), Rune Arnesen (Jeffrey & The Free Radikals, Ole Paus, Nils Petter Molvær), Nick Hatch (Admiral P), Matti Hansen (Horsemen, NIC).
