1. All I Could Say Was, “Hello”
2. Fading Into A Crowd
3. Before You Wake Up
““I still remember that night. It was christmas break and I’d stayed up skyping with a friend over the net. It must have been past midnight as she and her little sister played in call and I quietly recorded this soft tune, trying not to wake up my parents sleeping upstairs. I watched the snow fall outside. I believe this was the song that began my interest in writing an album.” ”
4. Everyday Life / Wandering
5. Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow
6. I Try Not To Think About It
7. Friends (ft. Blankts)
8. Otava (ft. DF5K)
“‘Otava’ was written and recorded in a small cabin on a remote island near Helsinki, where the parents of Joonas from DF5K live. We sat on the creaky and old wooden floor and improvised melodies while a fireplace crackled in the background. “Otava” is the Finnish word for the star constellation Big Dipper.”
9. “Happy New Year!”, I shout through a crowd of people as fireworks go off in the sky. Can you hear me?
10. I Can’t Always Be There For You
11. Before You Fade Away
12. And My Life Turned Around
13. Pictures (ft. Tämä)
“I wrote this song together with japanese singer Tämä, she’s a really nice person and very talented. We worked on a song prior to this years before, and I thought another collaboration would make for a great closer to this album of collected works by me.”
