Jesper Lindell’s new video with Amy Helm

Swedish Americana singer Jesper Lindell’s second album, Twilights (coming March 18, 2022), is a creative tour de force, a compelling mix of blue-eyed soul and down-to-earth classic rock, a timeless sound coming anew from Scandinavia. During two years of setbacks – weathering label issues, a pandemic, cancelled tours, and a kidney disease to boot – Jesper and his band had little else to do but write and record music. The result is a remarkable new album recorded in their own studio in Brunnsvik, outside of Ludvika, Sweden. The record is produced by Lindell and Björn Pettersson, but is at its core a collaborative effort from the heart and soul of the whole band. This was fundamental to the recording sessions from the get-go – to encourage ideas and influences from all six members of the band. As the cherry on top, the album has three luminous guest singers: Swedish singer Klara Söderberg, one half of sister-duo First Aid Kit; French rockstar Theo Lawrence; and American singer Amy Helm, daughter of The Band’s Levon Helm. Though Twilights is inspired by legends like The Band and Van Morrison, the point has never been to copy or even imitate, but to listen and learn. To emulate an attitude, more than anything, and to follow their example in the creative process.

Jesper Lindell and Amy Helm Deliver Soulful Americana with Band Cover “Twilight” (premiere)

Jesper Lindell is a roots sensation on his forthcoming album, Twilights (18 March). Featuring artists from Amy Helm to Klara Söderberg and Theo Lawrence, the LP is stacking up to be a who’s-who of popular western-spanning Americana and finds its roots in blue-eyed soul and vintage rock. Its title track, “Twilight”, is an exemplary showcase of these influences, replete with a whirring organ and scorching electric guitars. Lindell’s gritty vocals soar on the track, which also features aforementioned powerhouse artist Amy Helm, who is also Levon Helm’s daughter. This comes fittingly enough, considering the album was largely inspired by the Band, and the tune itself is an obscure Band number.
