„I was saved, truly saved. I was fed, I was given a shelter, a bed. I was loved before I ever understood and listened to like no one ever had listened before.
They found me, took me in, and I sung. We are a family now, that’s the only way I can describe it. All the talent they possess, so remarkable and delicate musicians, without them I would still be lost in the woods. Sometimes they are five and sometimes they are twelve, but always they are one heart. We are New Partner.The songs have always been there, appearing from nothing but sprung from truth, from what really happened. If you can’t face the truth you will forever live blinded and hidden away.
They have told me that the music is good. That it sounds like Daniel Johnston and Will Oldham. Like Galaxie 500, like Smog and Neil. But what do I know, what have I ever known. Your voice is the only voice you will ever have, same goes for your face and your life. I am just grateful. For so many years I stayed mute. I thought making music was about universal beauty and skills. But now I know that no one else ever can live through the world folding on my back, and that it is my goddamned responsibility to try. You wouldn’t be human if you weren’t trying. You would only be filth.“ Björn Wahlström
