Lukas Graham´s self titled album gets a world wide release
From the free-living enclave of Christiania in Copenhagen, Lukas Graham
and his boys — Mark "Lovestick" Falgren on drums, Kasper Daugaard on
keys, and Magnus "Magnum" Larsson on bass — crafted a combination of
funky pop and R&B stylings, which made them popular in their home
country of Denmark. With his soulful delivery and honest lyrics, Graham
recounted tales of family strife, poor decisions, and the celebration of
life, all inextricably entwined with his years spent in Christiania.
The young Graham's musical influences ranged from classical — gained
during his childhood experiences with the Copenhagen Boys' Choir — to
the Beatles and the Stones, as well as the Prodigy and Dr. Dre, whose
Chronic 2001 was one of the most influential albums for Graham. Despite a
less-privileged childhood, his parents were strong role models and much
of that love was reflected in his heartfelt songs, like "Mama Said" and
"Moving Alone." In early 2012, he released his first album, a
self-titled effort that included "Drunk in the Morning," which went on
to become a hit throughout Europe. Once they received more international
exposure, they were signed to Warner Bros. Records in 2013. A second
self-titled album — nicknamed the "Blue Album" — was released in late
2015 and featured the international hit "7 Years."
The world wide release of the new album Lukas Graham is available now, featuring the new single Take The World By Storm.
