Vinyl LP pressing. This is the fourth album by the renowned Norwegian singer/songwriter Jens Carelius. It's also his first album in eight years, and his biggest project to date. His great grandfather left a handwritten diary to his children before he died, and it has remained with the family ever since. When Jens read the story for the first time, he was both shocked and proud. "My grandfather traveled through Japan on his own at only 20 years old, traveled by foot through the entire country, before he settled in Siberia for the next 26 years," Carelius notes. "He wanted to catch and collect butterfliy species, but also had to fight off killers, leopards, tigers and robbers. Carelius' new album is the story of his great grandfather, Opsi. Norwegian writer, Roy Jacobsen, will also release a novel based on these diaries around the same time as the album comes out.
