Don't Wait For Me
This Is My Bonus
sir Was’ Letter EP follows on from his recent second album “Holding on to a Dream” which received plaudits and play around the world including multiple BBC 6 Music and Radio Nova playlists. Subsequent to the album’s release, sir Was played his biggest headline show to date at London’s Scala in November.
If dreams can be realised then they can, in turn, become something tangible, something that can be built upon and altered, something that can be held on to. It took Joel Wästberg some fifteen years of self-encouragement to finally release his own music, despite a long and varied history of playing and collaborating with others. Two well received albums followed – 2017’s Digging a Tunnel and 2019’s Holding on to A Dream.
The Letter EP, like Holding on to a Dream, was written, recorded, and produced by Wästberg – then mixed, once again, by Henrik Alser in a small cabin in the isolated Swedish countryside. Joel says of his recent output: “It’s the basics of life that I’m trying to cover. Not more, not less,” Joel states. “I can only dig where I stand but I’m am convinced that if you dig deep it will resonate in others”. The EP serves as a delicious post-script to Holding on to a Dream and as an enticing prelude to what may come next.
