"Kapow Goodbye (tak & undskyld)" the new album out May 7th from award-winning composer and singer Kristina Holgersen, was created in a unique collaboration with successful and respected author Leonora Christina Skov.
The lyrics on Holgersen’s new album were carefully culled from Leonora's memoirs: 2018’s "The One Who Lives Quietly" and "If We Don't Talk About It" published April 22nd, 2021.

Thanks to this approach, listeners are transported into the studio space during the session – to the wonderfully real and consciously curated analog atmosphere.
All of the arrangements heard here were improvised and created on the spot with Line Felding (known from Cody, and also part this project’s live-concert lineup), as well as Kasper Kaae (also from Cody), Mikkel Reumert (from Love Shop), and Mads Brinch Nielsen (from Bisse and Folkeklubben).
The album is forged with an unabashed love and an obvious heartfelt appreciation for acoustic instruments played by hand. Along those same organic lines, the lyrics appear in Leonora's own handwriting on the LP and CD covers.
