Gagnef Girl 02:59
GAGNEF GIRL by Ann-Sofie Jonsson Han tar tunnelbanan ner till Oxford Street, det är fredag och han ska ut Trängs där på gatan bland bilar och folk, kliver in i lugnet på The Royal Oak Medan skummet lägger sig på ölen i hans glas hörs från stereon en sång från förr "Dancing Queen, young and sweet", i hans sinne väcks minnen till liv Flottbron skimrade i månens sken, älven skar blank genom natten Jag ska älska dig till jag dör, my little Gagnef girl Tänk vad åren flyr, det känns som nyss, han var nitton och allt var på lek Den där sommar'n i Kyrkbyn, då stod hon där: "Hä bi tölv å femti, skä du ha än pösä å?" Men tiden går fort när varje dag är en dans, varje morgon bjuder på en chans Sommar'n blev höst, det fanns ingen tröst när han åkte och hon blev kvar Flottbron skimrade i månens sken, älven skar blank genom natten Jag ska älska dig till jag dör, my little Gagnef girl Men så sägs det ju så att finns det liv finns det hopp, det är inte över förrän det är over Kyrkan står väl kvar, och minnesstugan med, i Tjärnsjön badar barnen om sommar'n "So who knows", kanske minns honom än, när han reser sig och går har han bestämt sig I hans hand finns ett brev som han just skrev, det börjar "My little Gagnef girl..." Flottbron skimrade i månens sken, älven skar blank genom natten Jag ska älska dig till jag dör, my little Gagnef girl Flottbron skimrade i månens sken, älven skar blank genom natten Jag ska älska dig till jag dör, my little Gagnef girl

Stockholm 02:52
STOCKHOLM by Jason Isbell (Kobalt Music Group), adapted into Swedish by Ann-Sofie Jonsson Jag har hört om den himmelska ron På väg hem en sen natt förbi Västerbron Om en sommarvind mot en kind himlen blå Men av allt det jag tänkte blev ingenting så Färgerna bleknar när dag följer natt “Sakta” blev “sen” hinner aldrig ifatt Och till skillnad från förr när jag drömde mig matt Stockholm, nu vill jag hem Jag minns en vår som jag kallade höst För mitt arv hette längtan, min själ sökte tröst Genom skogar, under månens bleka sken Till en frusen monark klädd i silver och sten Skeppen i hamnen är fast liksom jag Lättar sitt ankar och dröjer sig kvar Men till skillnad från förr har mitt hjärta ett svar Stockholm, nu vill jag hem Alla dom jag känt Vad gör dom nu och minns dom mig än? Namn försvann, lämnade spår som finns kvar men dom fattas min famn Skeppen i hamnen är fast liksom jag Lättar sitt ankar och dröjer sig kvar Men till skillnad från förr har mitt hjärta ett svar Stockholm, nu vill jag hem Nu vill jag hem Nu vill jag hem

Angelo 03:19
ANGELO by John Mitchell MANUS (STIM) I pray to God from the valley below that you fly me safe back to Angelo Through the night, as black as sin, fear creeps through the skin This senseless game that noone wins, we just get high on adrenaline A single thought to a mojo pin, fools go rushing in Any wonder at the shape we're in, still I close my eyes and... Oh oh oh, Angelo... My heart's not really here so let me go Oh oh oh, Angelo... My heart's not really here so let me go 30 years under a fading sun, many battles fought, many battles done Politicians they just have their fun and the turning wheel turns in Any wonder at the shape we're in, still I close my eyes and... Oh oh oh, Angelo... My heart's not really here so let me go Oh oh oh, Angelo... My heart's not really here so let me go Like a new-felled tree they came and cut you down Was noone there for to hear that sound? Oh oh oh, Angelo... My heart's not really here so let me go Oh oh oh, Angelo... My heart's not really here so let me go Like a new-felled tree they came and cut you down And the old idea, well it's still hanging around Beyond the count of three you stay in the ground Where noone else can hear that sound

RISE WITH THE RIVER by John Mitchell MANUS (STIM) In the currency of currencies And the climate of economies Plummet like the mercury that made them In spite of hard-earned lessons laid The crosses borne from crosses made Time is all it seems remains unchanging The more the flood the less the floe Pretty soon we all must go Rise with the river Rise with the river When the tables turn what do you learn A handful of nothing Rise with the river Ford into the raging stream And leave those fallow banks In place of charity within the land It's the occupation of the sand And a population on a strand that's breaking The more the blood upon the sand The less we seem to understand That time is a river Rise with the river… In spite of hard-earned lessons laid The crosses borne from crosses made Time is all it seems remains unchanging Rise with the river… Rise with the river… Rise with the river Just a handful of nothing Just a handful of nothing When the tables turn what do you learn When the tables turn what do you learn Just a handful of nothing

BABY IT'S COLD TONIGHT by Ann-Sofie Jonsson MANUS (STIM) Baby it's cold tonight Babe we better sit close Wrap up warm and stick tight to each other Baby it's dark tonight Babe we better stay close Hold a candle to my darkest corners like I'll do yours Don't run with the devil just to keep warm Don't think there's noone on your side The deeper the dark, the more powerful the flame Baby when it's cold outside It can get lonely now Babe we better stand close Stretching our arms out, reaching for each other But it can get better now Babe we better keep our faith Tending it like a flower's promise to bloom Don't run with the devil just to keep warm Don't think there's noone on your side The deeper the dark, the more powerful the flame Baby when it's cold outside

TURNING A CORNER by John Mitchell MANUS (STIM) "This land is your land, this land is my land" So who made the borders? From those highbrow echelons Past the mid ground denizens To the low-lying quarters The greatest gift to the common man Was the promised land Land of the free Thereupon are many corners for turning Turning, turning to the sweetest mysteries Turn away from darkness Embrace the light Turn away from the solitude of the lonely, lonely night Turning a corner, turning out, turning free When you wanna give in, then your ship comes in Too many battles fought and lost for wars you just ain't winning When your deal goes down, what's left comes around And you can't tell a start from a beginning The greatest gift... When you wanna give in... Making peace with an enemy The olive branch in Gethsemane Truly turning a corner Gaining ground on the distance Easing into deliverance And a newfound order The greatest gift… When you wanna give in…

LEAVING CAROLINA by John Mitchell MANUS (STIM) Well, my head’s stuck on the pillow ‘Cause I know it’s time to go As daylight falls on Charleston My mood is oh so low And I’m walking down the garden Only look back to close the gate One last run in the Chevy On Columbia interstate Farewell ye’ Battery And your projects Where hope grows thin I’m leaving Carolina Of times we’ve had the best Just one last stop to make Before I touch down in Inverness And that’s to say goodbye to you My heart is pulled down and torn in two I am leaving Carolina All the palmtrees by the roadside Are waving in the wind The sun dips on the skyline The new day forth to bring Last night weighs heavy On a heart that’s very low I’m leaving Carolina.... Southern comfort afore you go While Fogerty plays on the radio I’m leaving Carolina... I am leaving Carolina On the early morning plane Yes, I am...

Haul Away 02:53
HAUL AWAY by John Mitchell MANUS (STIM) Shore side boys waulk graith in the river Whilst the South Deep chiels pitch to the wave Lister draws warp to the barrel Twice round the dolly and you haul away Cape Cod girls are mighty pretty And the Cape Cod boys would woo all day South Deep lads chase their darlings Must rise in the morning when the fleet's away On the banks and knolls the bows are ploughing The North Sea holes to where the fleet's away Shoot and heave darlings of silver Twice to the dolly and you haul away

Dear Listener,
Time flies and sometimes it's hard to keep track of it. Seven years have passed since we released our full-length album Western Highways. That doesn’t feel so long ago, but on sitting down to take stock of our musical production since then we realized that we’ve been busy! In this new world of digital single releases and EP’s we wanted to collect some of our music from the last few years onto a CD - a compilation to hold in our hands and remind ourselves of all the great times we’ve had! We hope you like this very varied compilation, and see you soon for more music and fun!

PRESS RELEASE (in Swedish):

Efter 645 spelningar:

Daladuo samlar sig på nytt album


I över tio år har de spelat sig till ryktet som en av Dalarnas bästa liveakter.

Totalt har de gjort hela 645 spelningar.

På John Mitchell & Sofie Jonssons andra album har de samlat de senaste årens digitala släpp på en cd.

- I den digitala världen känns allt så flyktigt. Vi ville samla det vi gjort på en fysisk cd-skiva som du kan hålla i handen, säger Sofie Jonsson.

Det är också många i duons växande publik som efterfrågat en ny skiva, eftersom det är sju år sedan förra albumet ”Western Highways” släpptes. Nya skivan har de helt enkelt döpt till ”2014-2018” och de beskriver den som mer varierad än debutskivan.

- Det är olika musiker och fyra av låtarna är från en live-ep med vårt andra band The Major Seconds. Det spänner från ren folkmusik via americana till 80-talsrock, säger John Mitchell.

Två av låtarna på skivan släpptes så sent som i höstas: Gagneftjejen Sofies ”Gagnef Girl” och ”Angelo”, som handlar om Johns upplevelser som ung skotsk soldat stationerad i Nordirland.

Annars har John Mitchell & Sofie Jonsson mest gjort sig kända för sina liveframträdanden. Hela 645 spelningar har det blivit sedan starten 2007. De tre senaste åren har duon varit nominerad till Årets liveupplevelse på Dalecarlia Music Awards och 2017 blev det seger.

- Att få möta publiken och dela med oss av vår musik tröttnar vi aldrig på. Vi kommer att fortsätta spela live så mycket vi orkar, säger Sofie Jonsson.

Samlingsalbumet ”2014-2018” släpps på lördag den 22/12 kl. 15 på Peace & Love-caféet i Borlänge.
