Once upon a time, two children overheard their parents plan to abandon them in a forest, as they could not afford to feed them. But the children cleverly gathered small white stones, and on their journey into the forest, they secretly dropped them onto the ground. At nightfall, left alone, the moon illuminated the white stones, and the reflection became their guiding light. So the fairytale about Hansel and Gretel goes. Maybe each song on this album can be compared to a white stone? Listen – and let them lead you into your own secret garden.
As on the first album, all the music on “White Stones” is composed and produced by Rolf Lovland. “When you’ve discovered your own musical identity and seen your music communicate to, and connect with people all over the world, you really don’t want to change the concept”, says Lovland . “The greatest challenge writing the this material was to stay truthful, protecting the intimacy and the simplicity of our ideas. White Stones is not like Songs from a Secret Garden, but it’s coming from the same heart. The seeds are the same – the crop is new.
