“So, two years have gone by writing songs for ‘Leave My Mind Sometimes’, and it feels weird to close this period now that they are finished,” the artist writes. “But I’m happy and satisfied that I took all that time to write the songs for the album. I’ve started writing the songs in 2018/2019 and recorded most of it in that period as well. I had to learn a lot about mixing, and mixed the album in 2020. If you are still reading this, thanks for that and I hope you’ll enjoy the album that comes out this November!”
