My Bubba & Elsa Sjunger Visor // Sing Swedish Songs is a collection of My Bubba's favorite Swedish folk songs. They were recorded deep in the Swedish woods together with longtime friend Elsa Håkansson. More information about the album, along with translations and videos can be found here. Each print comes with a code and instructions how to download the album (hi-fi audio). More fresh art by Sean W. Spellman can be found here.
The single “Gone” is produced by Jack White and sees My Bubba joined in Third Man Studios by a backing combo comprised of bassist Jack Lawrence, keyboardist Dean Fertita, and legendary Nashville drummer Whip Triplet. “Gone” is the A-side and the first of their songs written on a century-old lap harp, which was procured from an old boyfriend’s attic. After breaking up, My Bubba wrote this song about the old lover on the lap harp. On the B-Side, a cover of Bob Dylan’s “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go” serves as one of the first songs the duo ever sang together in Copenhagen. They still play it most evenings together on the road.
